Finding the right logic
This chapter aims to justify logic as a body of analytic truths and inferential principles. The difference with this choice of logic from the standpoint of semantic anti-realism is that it insists not only on the usual constructivism but it also provides new grounds for insisting relevance between the premises and conclusion of a logically correct argument. This chapter also discusses a canon of constructive inference and provides an account of cognitive significance that shows how good scientific sense is rooted in the sensible.
