Title: Against Classical Paraconsistent Metatheory

Abstract:  There was a time when `logic' just meant classical logic.
The climate is slowly changing and non-classical logic cannot be
dismissed off-hand. However, a metatheory used to study the properties
of non-classical logic is often classical. I will argue that this
practice of relying on classical metatheories is problematic. In
particular, it is a bad practice because the metatheory that is used
to study a non-classical logic often rules out the very logic it is
designed to study. Joint work with Koji Tanaka.
