Human and Social Aspects in Logic

A digital workshop with Catarina Dutilh Novaes

Organisation: Volker Peckhaus, Elena Ficara


The workshop belongs to a series of encounters at Paderborn University about contemporary authors whose work is devoted to the History and Philosophy of Logic. Previous encounters have been with Susan Haack, Stephen Read, Graham Priest, Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer.


The aim of the workshop is to engage in a dialogue with the philosopher, historian of logic and philosophical logician Catarina Dutilh Novaes, with special focus on her new book The Dialogical Roots of Deduction (Cambridge 2020). The book is representative of some of the fundamental lines and interests of Catarina Dutilh Novaes’ research, among them: the importance of dialogue for logic and philosophy, the theory and use of conceptual genealogy for philosophy, the idea of philosophy as a multi-methodological enterprise, the stress on the relevance of the social and political realm for logic.


Papers can be about any of the topics Catarina Dutilh Novaes has dealt with in her work, such as, among others:


The historical roots of deduction in ancient dialectics

The socio-political roots of deduction

The psychological and cognitive roots of deduction

The method of conceptual genealogy

The meaning of “form” and “formal” in the expression “formal logic”

The role and development of notations in logic and mathematics
