Studies in Universal Logic

The road to universal logic II

Festschrift for the 50th birthday of Jean-Yves Béziau

Edited by

Arnold Koslow, Arthur Buchsbaum

This second volume of a collection of papers offers new perspectives and challenges in the study of logic. It is presented in honor of the fiftieth birthday of Jean-Yves Béziau. The papers touch upon a wide range of topics including paraconsistent logic, quantum logic, geometry of oppositions, categorical logic, computational logic, fundamental logic notions (identity, rule, quantification) and history of logic (Leibniz, Peirce, Hilbert).
The volume gathers personal recollections about Jean-Yves Béziau and an autobiography, followed by 25 papers written byinternationally distinguished logicians, mathematicians, computer scientists, linguists and philosophers, including Irving Anellis, Dov Gabbay, Ivor Grattan-Guinness, Istvan Németi, Henri Prade.

These essays will be of interest to all students and researchers interested in the nature and future of logic.
