Workshop: *'History and Philosophy of Logic Notations' *
Tallinn, Estonia, 1-2 August 2015
Deadline: 1 March 2015

Notations are an important aspect of modern logic. Since the time of 
Leibniz at least, logicians have been keenly interested in the 
properties of logical notations and symbolic systems. One remarkable 
attempt to develop a philosophical investigation into logical notations 
was made by C. S. Peirce, who coined the phrase “philosophy of notation” 
to denote the principles that govern logical symbolism, both algebraical 
and graphical. In the works of logicians such as Leibniz, Lambert, 
Ploucquet, Boole, Frege, Peirce, Schröder, Peano, Russell (and many 
others),  we find important ideas concerning the different modes of 
representation of logical concepts, and important suggestions regarding 
the virtues and faults of the different systems.
The aim of the workshop is to update and advance scholarship on the 
history and philosophy of logic notations, and to explore the present 
challenges and future developments of the field.
Topics that might be addressed include: the history of logical 
notations; the virtues and the limits of different notations and 
symbolic systems; the design and the role of notations in logic; the 
circulation of notations in and outside logic; diagrammatic reasoning 
and visual thinking in logic and mathematics; cognitive and semiotic 
dimensions of formal reasoning.

Invited speakers include: Mirja Hartimo (Jyväskylä, Finland), Volker 
Peckhaus (Paderborn, Germany), Frederik Sjernfelt (Copenhaguen, 
Denmark), Jean-Yves Béziau (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)  and James Burton 
(Brighton, UK).

The workshop will take place in Tallinn on 1-2 August 2015, before the 
'Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science Congress' that takes place 
on 3-8 August in Helsinki.
There is a 2 hour ferry ride between Tallinn and Helsinki.

A selection of papers will be considered for publication in a special 
issue of the journal: 'History and Philosophy of Logic'.

Submissions (300 words approx.) should be sent to moktefi at unistra.fr by 
*1 March 2015*.
Notifications will be sent by 15 March 2015.

Organisers: Ahti-Veikko Pietarinen, Francesco Bellucci & Amirouche 
Moktefi (Tallinn University of Technology)
