Logic Group<http://logic.uconn.edu/> – University of Connecticut

The UConn Logic Group is proud to announce the first of its annual workshops. The workshops are organized around a researcher whose work has had a significant and lasting influence on a field of logic, broadly construed. The remaining talks, invited and selected, will be given by critics as well as contributors to the field who were influenced by the keynote speaker's work.

April 26-27, 2014, University of Connecticut, Storrs

Abstractionism / Neologicism

The first workshop in the series will focus on Abstractionism / Neologicism. Abstractionism pursues Frege's goal of finding a logical foundation for arithmetic by replacing his famously inconsistent Basic Law V with different resources: so-called abstraction principles, understood as implicit definitions. Since the 1983 publication of Crispin Wright's Frege's Conception of Numbers as Objects, there has been a wave of literature developing and criticizing this program—a wave that still has not subsided. The 2014 UConn Logic Workshop will pursue current work on this project.
