About the Authors
  • This collection of new essays presents cutting-edge research on the semantic conception of logic, the invariance criteria of logicality, grammaticality, and logical truth. Contributors explore the history of the semantic tradition, starting with Tarski, and its historical applications, while central criticisms of the tradition, and especially the use of invariance criteria to explain logicality, are revisited by the original participants in that debate. Other essays discuss more recent criticism of the approach, and researchers from mathematics and linguistics weigh in on the role of the semantic tradition in their disciplines. This book will be invaluable to philosophers and logicians alike.

    • Multidisciplinary, with contributions from leading philosophers, logicians and linguists
    • Includes both criticism and defense of the semantic tradition and its applications
    • Demonstrates the breadth and depth of the semantic conception and traces its influence in a number of different areas
