9780199570423: Plural Logic
Críticas:

In their clear and combative style, they introduce the relevant notions and offer rebuttals to arguments that would oppose their own positions. . . . Oliver and Smiley's book is full of careful and precise developments, as well as witty arguments. . . . provides a good survey of plural logic and the most important issues connected to it ( David A. Nicolas, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

A veritable tour de force. ( Lloyd Humberstone, Australasian Journal of Philosophy)

Throughout the book the exposition is clear; the arguments cogent; the formalism as transparent as can be. Proofs are relegated to appendices. This is a rewarding book. It deserves study in any course in philosophical or mathematical logic, and a place in every logicians library ( Louis F Goble, zbmath)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 158 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Alex Oliver and Timothy Smiley provide a natural point of entry to what for most readers will be a new subject. Plural logic deals with plural terms ( Whitehead and Russell , Henry VIII s wives , the real numbers , the square roots of -1 , they ), plural predicates ( surrounded the fort , are prime , are consistent , imply ), and plural quantification ( some things , any things ). Current logic is singularist: its terms stand for at most one thing. By contrast, the foundational thesis of this book is that a particular term may legitimately stand for several things at once; in other words, there is such a thing as genuinely plural denotation. The authors argue that plural phenomena need to be taken seriously and that the only viable response is to adopt a plural logic, a logic based on plural denotation. They expound a framework of ideas that includes the distinction between distributive and collective predicates, the theory of plural descriptions, multivalued functions, and lists. A formal system of plural logic is presented in three stages, before being applied to Cantorian set theory as an illustration.Technicalities have been kept to a minimum, and anyone who is familiar with the classical predicate calculus should be able to follow it. The authors approach is an attractive blend of no-nonsense argumentative directness and open-minded liberalism, and they convey the exciting and unexpected richness of their subject. Mathematicians and linguists, as well as logicians and philosophers, will find surprises in this book. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199570423
