Logic on the Track of Social Change

David Braybrooke, Bryson Brown, and Peter K. Schotch

Abstract

This book sets out a new logic of rules, developed to demonstrate how such a logic can contribute to the clarification of historical questions about social rules. The chapters illustrate applications of this new logic in extensive treatments of a variety of accounts of social changes, analysing in these examples the content of particular social rules and the course of changes in them.

Keywords: logic, rules, social rules, social changes
