We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a Synthese special issue:
Varieties of Entailment
Essays dedicated to the memory of Carolina Blasio
Heinrich Wansing (Ruhr-University Bochum) and Marco Ruffino (University of Campinas)
Special Issue Description
On August 26, 2017, our colleague Carolina Blasio da Silva died in a fatal car accident in Campinas, Brazil, only one day after successfully defending her PhD thesis Sobre Noções de Consequência Generalizadas e Lógicas Plurivalentes (On generalized notions of consequence and plurivalent logics) at UNICAMP (Brazil). She was a young and promising researcher, besides being the administrator of the Brazilian discussion group on Logic, an active member of the Brazilian LaTeX community, and a diligent feminist campaigner. This special issue is dedicated to her memory, and is concerned with topics in logic and philosophy of logic related to her fields of interest. These topics include:
Generalized logical frameworks and logical pluralism / logical plurality
The notion of a logical theory, the notion of theory in Logic
Classes of consequence relations generalizing or revising the Tarskian approach to consequence
Generalized notions of compositionality, analyticity, and truth-functionality
Comparisons between abstract, truth-theoretic and proof-theoretic approaches to inferentialism (in metalogic) and the meaning of logical connectives
Entailment-related solutions to the paradoxes
