Social Applications of Logic for Society and Politics
Submissions Due: 1 July 2015
For a long part of its history, the central aim of logic was to provide an inventory of schemata for valid arguments. The mathematical turn brought a revolutionary change of perspective and methods, which incurred the concern that the focus of this new logic shifted from the traditional role of general investigation of arguments to the analysis of mathematical reasoning. The contemporary flourishing of methods and topics of research in logic makes such a concern at least inadequate. This special issue of Societate și politică (Society and Politics) aims to offer a rich and eloquent picture of contemporary research concerning the social applications of logic, stemming from mainstream and alternative traditions and research programs. We invite contributions in active branches of practically oriented logical research, but also papers which aim to reflect on the impact the new and historical developments had on the self-image of logic as a discipline and accurately depict and exploit the significance of the results obtained as a consequence of the practical turn.
