(p.2) (p.3) Chapter 1 Introduction
Logical Pluralism

JC Beall

Oxford University Press

This book presents and defends what it calls logical pluralism, the view that there is more than one genuine deductive consequence relation, and that this plurality arises not merely because there are different languages, but rather arises even within the kinds of claims expressed in any one language. First, it sets logical consequence in its historical context, explains why it is important, and clarifies what is assumed to be the settled core of this notion. It defines logical pluralism and indicates the type of arguments that it takes to support the position. Concrete examples of the various consequence relations endorsed by qua pluralists are given.

Keywords:   logical pluralism, logical consequence, plurality, logic, constructive logic
