Quine's challenge and Logical Pluralism

  title={Quine's challenge and Logical Pluralism},
  author={A Negro},
‌ A number of deviant deductive systems have been proposed which differ in some way from classical logic. An influential philosophical interpretation of plurality in logic has been developed by Quine, who introduced the meaning-change thesis, summarized in his "Change of logic, change of subject". We show that if Quine is right about the consequences of his thesis, then the systems of classical logic can only be rejected as unscientific or meaningless, and not refined as inadequate. We show…

It is argued that Dummett gives a mistaken elaboration of the notion of harmony, an idea stemming from a remark of Gerhard Gentzen, that the introduction-rules are autonomous if they are taken fully to specify the meaning of the logical constants, and the rules are harmonious if the elimination-rule draws its conclusion from just the grounds stated in the introduced-rule.
Monism: The One True Logic
Logical pluralism is the claim that different accounts of validity can be equally correct. Beall and Restall have recently defended this position. Validity is a matter of truth-preservation over
The logical basis of metaphysics
Michael Dummett's new book is the greatly expanded and recently revised version of his distinguished William James Lectures, delivered in 1976, and shows how the choice between different logics arises at the level of the theory of meaning and depends upon the choice of one or another general form of meaning-theory.
Word and Object
This edition offers a new preface by Quine's student and colleague Dagfinn Follesdal that describes the never-realized plans for a second edition of Word and Object, in which Quine would offer a more unified treatment of the public nature of meaning, modalities, and propositional attitudes.

Quine and Slater on Paraconsistency and Deviance
It is claimed that genuine rivalry between (similar) logics *L* and *L′* is possible whenever each constant in *.L* has the same operational meaning as its counterpart in * L′* although differences in global meaning arise in at least one case.
What not? A defence of dialetheic theory of negation
The primary concern of logic is inference; and in particular, the question of what constitutes a valid inference. In investigating this issue, a certain class of notions has always appeared to be of
