Transcendental syntax 2 . 0

  title={Transcendental syntax 2 . 0},
  author={J. Girard},
How come that finite language can produce certainty — at least a sufficiently certain certainty, sometimes apodictic — in the presence of infinity? The answer can by no means be found in external reality, quite the contrary: it seems that the very purpose of semantics is to make this question untractable with the help of an ad hoc analytical newspeak in which one cannot even formulate the above question. Transcendental syntax comes from the constatation that logic is better off when there is no… Expand

This work follows the order of discovery of the concepts, which (as expected) starts with the semantics and ends with the syntex; it is hoped that this orthogonal look at the same object will help to apprehend the concepts. Expand
The Blind Spot: Lectures on Logic
These lectures on logic, more specifically proof theory, are basically intended for postgraduate students and researchers in logic. The question at stake is the nature of mathematical knowledge andExpand
Geometry of interaction III: accommodating the additives
The paper expounds geometry of interaction, for the first time in the full case, i.e. for all connectives of linear logic, including additives and constants. The interpretation is done within aExpand

Geometry of Interaction is a transcendental syntax developed in the framework of operator algebras that provides a built-in interpretation of cut-elimination as well as an explanation for light, i.e., complexity sensitive, logics. Expand
Intuitionistic type theory
These lectures were given in Padova and Munich later in the same year as part of the meeting on Konstruktive Mengenlehre und Typentheorie which was organized in Munich by Prof. Helmut Schwichtenberg. Expand
Geometry of Interaction 1: Interpretation of System F
The chapter describes the development of a semantics of computation free from the twin drawbacks of reductionism and subjectivism and that a representative class of algorithms can be modelized by means of standard mathematics. Expand
The structure of multiplicatives
Investigating Girard's new propositionnal calculus which aims at a large scale study of computation, we stumble quickly on that question: What is a multiplicative connective? We give here a detailedExpand
