Are other logics possible? Maccoll's logic and some english reactions, 1905-1912

  title={Are other logics possible? Maccoll's logic and some english reactions, 1905-1912},
  author={Ivor Grattan-Guinness},
  journal={Nordic Journal of Philosophical Logic},
By the mid-1900s Hugh MacColl had published enough in the way of papers and notes on logic that a more connected presentation could be made. Accordingly, he reworked several items into a book published in 1906 and entitled Symbolic Logic and its Applications. In this paper I comment on some main features of the book and note reactions to it at the time, especially by Russell. Consequences of his ignorance of contemporary literature are also considered. The account begins with his little-known…

The purpose here is to explore and insofar as possible document, whether, and to what extent, Russell interacted with the various, either the various candidates or their, ideas that Dejnožka and others have proposed as potentially influential in Russell’s intellectual reactions to nonclassical logic or to the philosophical concepts that might contribute to his reactions tononclassical logics.
The Venn-MacColl Dispute in Nature
During 1881, the British logicians John Venn and Hugh MacColl engaged in a brief dispute in Nature about ‘symbolical logic’. The letters to the editor shed interesting light on the early reception of
Non-Normal Dialogics for a Wonderful World and More
The aim of the paper is to offer a dialogical interpretation of non-normal modal logic which will suggest some explorations beyond the concept of nonnormality. This interpretation will be connected

On How to Be a Dialogician
The aim here will be to present the main technical and philosophical features of what can be seen as the dialogical approach to logic, illustrated through both very well known and new dialogics, and delineate the common pragmatic attitude which constitutes the cohesive force within the dialogicals universe.

A Survey Of Symbolic Logic
Modern interest in modal logic began with this seminal work by the American C.I. Lewis. As well as developing a theory of strict implication based on criticism of Russell and Whitebread's concept of
The ontological foundation of Russell's theory of modality
Prominent thinkers such as Kripke and Rescher hold that Russell has no modal logic, even that Russell was indisposed toward modal logic. In Part I, I show that Russell had a modal logic which he
The extent of Russell's modal views
Russell has recently been held to have had a modal logic, a full modal theory and a view of naming that anticipates Kripke's intuitions on rigid designation. It is argued here that no such claims are
