This Week in Logic at CUNY

 

The New York Philosophical Logic Group
Time/Place: Tuesday Sept. 25, 7:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., 2nd floor seminarroom, NYU Philosophy Dept (5, Washington Place)
Speaker: Graham Priest (GC, CUNY)
Topic: Validity Curries
Brief Abstract: Curry Paradoxes involving truth and set-hood are well known.
Those who favour unrestricted truth predicates and abstraction principles,
have tended to solve the paradoxes by rejecting the principle of Contraction
for conditionals. Of late, paradoxes in the same family, but involving the
notion of validity, have been turning up; and it would appear that these
cannot be solved in this way. In this talk I will suggest how these may be
solved by deploying a sub-structural logic which rejects Contraction for
premises.
