This workshop aims at an account of logic as construed from logicians’ practices of writing and reading. Further interests are activities of commenting or reviewing, and of

publishing and collecting.


The proposed approach is motivated by the observations that a great deal of the working logician’s job is to write and read. First, to work a problem in logic, it is necessary to apply certain rules for transformation or deduction. In order to apply these rules correctly, you may write down the consecutive steps by symbol inscriptions and eventually read off the result. Secondly, communicating logical problems requires activities of writing for an audience, and the results to be read by others. Moreover, what there is to be read depends not only on what has been written, but also on what – and how it – has been read by others.


Topics for contributions may include, but are not restricted to the following aspects as applied to logic:

Questions of notation

Questions of literary style




Logic journals

Bibliographies and catalogues

Perusal of public or research libraries

Private libraries and collections

Bibliometrical research


Contributed talks should not exceed 30 minutes including discussion.


Keynote speakers:

Prof. Dr. Volker Peckhaus (University of Paderborn), Editor-in-Chief of History and Philosophy of Logic

Prof. Dr. Dirk Schlimm (McGill University Montreal / LMU Munich)

PD. Dr. Matthias Wille (University of Paderborn)
