Call for Papers for a Synthese special issue on:

  **Varieties of Entailment**
  Essays dedicated to the memory of Carolina Blasio

Guest Editors:
- Heinrich Wansing (Ruhr-University Bochum)
- Marco Ruffino (State University of Campinas)

Special Issue Description:

On August 26, 2017, our colleague Carolina Blasio fell victim to a
fatal car accident in Campinas, Brazil, only one day after
successfully defending her PhD thesis "Sobre Noções de Consequência
Generalizadas e Lógicas Plurivalentes" (On generalized notions of
consequence and plurivalent logics) at UNICAMP (Brazil). She was a
young and promising researcher, besides being the administrator of the
Brazilian discussion group on Logic, an active member of the Brazilian
LaTeX community, and a diligent feminist campaigner. This special
issue is dedicated to her memory, and is concerned with topics in
logic and philosophy of logic related to her fields of interest. These
topics include:

• Generalized logical frameworks and logical pluralism / logical plurality

• The notion of a logical theory, the notion of theory in Logic

• Classes of consequence relations generalizing or revising the
Tarskian approach to consequence

• Generalized notions of compositionality, analyticity, and truth-functionality

• Comparisons between abstract, truth-theoretic and proof-theoretic
approaches to inferentialism (in metalogic) and the meaning of logical

• Entailment-related solutions to the paradoxes
