*Call for submissions *for a special issue on connexive logic on the *Logic
Journal of the IGPL* <>.

*Guest editors*: Fernando Cano-Jorge (Universidad Panamericana and
University of Otago) and Luis Estrada-González (National Autonomous
University of Mexico).


Connexive logics are orthogonal to classical logic insofar as they validate
certain non-theorems of classical logic involving mainly negation and
implication, among them

~(~A → A)

~((A → B)&(~A → B))

(A → B) → ~(A → ~B)

~(A → ~A)

~((A → B)&(A → ~B))

~ (A → B) → (A → ~B)

Connexive principles were discussed again in the contemporary era by Hugh
MacColl at the dawn of 19th century and by Everett J. Nelson in the 1930s;
they gained a new momentum in the 1960s with seminal papers by Richard B.
Angell and Storrs McCall and their relevantist interlocutors, and then they
received new attention in the 21st century thanks to works by Claudio Pizzi
and Heinrich Wansing, among others. Since then, systems of connexive logic
have been motivated by considerations of a content connection between the
antecedent and consequent of valid implications, cancellation-like accounts
of negation, as well as by applications that range from Aristotle’s
syllogistic to Categorial Grammar and the study of causal implications.

Surveys of connexive logic can be found in:

▪  Storrs McCall, “A history of connexivity”, in D.M. Gabbay et al.
(eds.), *Handbook
of the History of Logic. Volume 11. Logic: A History of its Central
Concepts*, Amsterdam, Elsevier, 2012, pp. 415-449.

▪  Heinrich Wansing, “Connexive logic
<>”, in E. N. Zalta
(ed.), *The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy*.

Following the VII Workshop on Connexive Logic
held in Mexico City on October 2022, this special issue is meant to present
current work on connexive logic to stimulate future research. Any papers
related to connexive logics are welcome. Topics of interest include (but
are not limited to) the following:

▪  Philosophical and historical considerations on the nature of connexivity;

▪  Logical and philosophical comparison between connexivity and other

▪  The place of connexive logics among non-classical logics

▪  Examinations of various systems of connexive logics;

▪  Philosophical implications and applications of connexive logics;

▪  Connexive-like principles for binary connectives other than implication;

▪  Empirical studies on the scope of connexivity.

*Submission details*

Submissions of papers, following the general rules of the *Logic Journal of
the IGPL* <>,
should be sent to both editors at fernando.cano91 at and
loisayaxsegrob at The deadline for submissions is June 30,
2023. Any inquiries should be sent to either of the addresses above.
