About the Authors
  • Philosophy of logic is a fundamental part of philosophical study, and one which is increasingly recognized as being immensely important in relation to many issues in metaphysics, metametaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of language. This textbook provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to topics including the objectivity of logical inference rules and its relevance in discussions of epistemological relativism, the revived interest in logical pluralism, the question of logic's metaphysical neutrality, and the demarcation between logic and mathematics. Chapters in the book cover the state of the art in contemporary philosophy of logic, and allow students to understand the philosophical relevance of these debates without having to contend with complex technical arguments. This will be a major new resource for students working on logic, as well as for readers seeking a better understanding of philosophy of logic in its wider context.

    • Presents up-to-date and accessible discussion of a foundational part of philosophical study, and of its importance for related subdisciplines
    • Provides an overview of the connections between topics including metaphysics of logic, logical pluralism, and the meaning of logical constants
    • Allows students to understand the relevance of philosophical issues without having to wade through complex technical jargon
