Title: | Recent Trends in Philosophical Logic [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Roberto Ciuni Heinrich Wansing Caroline Willkommen |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This volume presents recent advances in philosophical logic with chapters focusing on non-classical logics, including paraconsistent logics, substructural logics, modal logics of agency and other modal logics. The authors coverthemes such as the know ability paradox, tableaux and sequent calculi, natural deduction, definite descriptions, identity, truth, dialetheism, and possible worlds semantics. The developments presented here focus on challengingproblems in the specification of fundamental philoso phical notions, as well as presenting new techniques and tools, thereby contributing to the development of the field. Each chapter contains a bibliography, to assist the reader inmaking connections in the specific areas covered. Thus this work provides bo th a starting point for further investigations into philosophical logic and an update on advances, techniques and applications in a dynamic field. Thechapters originate from papers presented during the Trends in Logic XI conference at the Ruhr University Bochum, June 2012 |

Title: | The Beginning and the End [electronic resource] : The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective |
Author(s): |
Clment Vidal |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end, or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, ifany, in cosmic evolu tion? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe'sdeepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the f ine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, heargues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution, and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework thatshould stir debate for years to come |

Author(s): |
Michael Drieschner |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book presents a collection of texts by the German physicist and philosopher Carl Friedrich von Weizscker (1912-2007), for use in seminars on the history, epistemology and structure of physics. Most texts appear in Englishfor the first time. Weiz scker became famous through his works in physics, mainly in the early development of nuclear physics. Later he would also become well known as a philosopher and analyst of contemporary culture. Texts includethe original publications of the Weizscker-Bethe formula of nuclear masses and the Bethe-Weizscker cycle, which explains the source of energy in the sun both were developed by Bethe at the same time and independentlyof Weizscker. Further texts deal with Weizsckers explanation of the origin of planets, his explanation of the time arrow in Statistical Mechanics and his analyses of Quantum Mechanics and the structure of physics ingeneral |

Title: | Towards a General Theory of Classifications [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Daniel Parrochia Pierre Neuville |
Date: | 2013 |
Publisher: | Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book is an essay on the epistemology of classifications. Its main purpose is not to provide an exposition of an actual mathematical theory of classifications, that is, a general theory which would be available to any kind ofthem: hierarchical or non-hierarchical, ordinary or fuzzy, overlapping or non-overlapping, finite or infinite, and so on, establishing a basis for all possible divisions of the real world. For the moment, such a theory remains nothingbut a dream. Instead, the authors essentia lly put forward a number of key questions. Their aim is rather to reveal the state of art of this dynamic field and the philosophy one may eventually adopt to go further. To this end theypresent some advances made in the course of the last century, discus s a few tricky problems that remain to be solved, and show the avenues open to those who no longer wish to stay on the wrong track. Researchers and professionalsinterested in the epistemology and philosophy of science, library science, logic and set theor y, order theory or cluster analysis will find this book a comprehensive, original and progressive introduction to the main questions in thisfield |

Publisher: | Basel : Springer Basel |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The theory of oppositions based on Aristotelian foundations of logic has been pictured in a striking square diagram which can be understood and applied in many different ways having repercussions in various fields: epistemology,linguistics, mathemati cs, sociology, physics. The square can also be generalized in other two-dimensional or multi-dimensional objects extending in breadth and depth the original Aristotelian theory. The square of opposition is a veryattractive theme which has been going throu gh centuries without evaporating. Since 10 years there is a new growing interest for the square due to recent discoveries and challenging interpretations. This book presents a collection ofpreviously unpublished papers by high level specialists of the squ are from all over the world |

Title: | Risk and Meaning [electronic resource] : Adversaries in Art, Science and Philosophy |
Author(s): |
Nicolas Bouleau |
Date: | 2011 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This richly illustrated book is an exploration of how chance and risk, on the one hand, and meaning or significance on the other, compete for the limelight in art, in philosophy, and in science. In modern society, prudence andprobability calculation permeate our daily lives. Yet it is clear for all to see that neither cautious bank regulations nor mathematics have prevented economic crises from occurring time and again. Nicolas Bouleau argues that it is themeaning we assign to an event that determine s the perceived risk, and that we generally turn a blind eye to this important fact, because the word meaning is itself awkward to explain. He tackles this fundamental question throughexamples taken from cultural fields ranging from painting, architecture , and music, to poetry, biology, and astronomy. This enables the reader to view overwhelming risks in a different light. Bouleau clarifies that the most importantthing in a time of uncertainty is to think of prudence on a higher level, one that truly addr esses the various subjective interpretations of the world |

Note: | Converging evidence from disciplines including sociobiology, evolutionary psychology and human biology forces us to adopt a new idea of what it means to be a human. As cherished concepts such as free will, nave realism, humansas creation's crowning g lory fall and our moral roots in ape group dynamics become clearer, we have to take leave of many concepts that have been central to defining our humanness. What emerges is a new human, the homo novus, a humanbeing without illusions. Leading authors from many different fields explore these issues by addressing these illusions and providing evidence for the need to switch to this new idea of man, in spite of understandable reluctance to letgo of our most beloved illusions |

Note: | Quantum mechanics, discovered by Werner Heisenberg and Erwin Schrdinger in 1925-1926, is famous for its radical implications for our conception of physics and for our view of human knowledge in general. While these implicationshave been seen as scien tifically productive and intellectually liberating to some, Niels Bohr and Heisenberg, among them, they have been troublesome to many others, including Schrdinger and, most famously, Albert Einstein. Thesituation led to the intense debate that started in the wake of its discovery and has continued into our own time, with no end appearing to be in sight. Epistemology and Probability aims to contribute to our understanding of quantummechanics and of the reasons for its extraordinary impact by reconsidering, under the rubric of nonclassical epistemology, the nature of epistemology and probability, and their relationships in quantum theory. The book bringstogether the thought of the three figures most responsible for the rise of quantum mechanicsHeisenberg an d Schrdinger, on the physical side, and Bohr, on the philosophical sidein order to develop a deeper sense of the physical,mathematical, and philosophical workings of quantum-theoretical thinking. Reciprocally, giving a special emphasis on probability and specifically to the Bayesian concept of probability allows the book to gain new insights into thethought of these figures. The book reconsiders, from this perspective, the Bohr-Einstein debate on the epistemology of quantum physics and, in particular, off ers a new treatment of the famous experiment of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen(EPR), and of the Bohr-Einstein exchange concerning the subject. It also addresses the relevant aspects of quantum information theory and considers the implications of its episte mological argument for higher-level quantum theories,such as quantum field theory and string and brane theories. One of the main contributions of the book is its analysis of the role of ma |

Note: | Volume 5 has three parts, dealing with General Relativity, Epistemological Issues, and Quantum Mechanics. The core of the first part is Hilberts two semester lecture course on The Foundations of Physics (1916/17). Thisis framed by Hilberts published First and Second Communications on the Foundations of Physics (1915, 1917) and by a selection of documents dealing with more specific topics like The Principle of Causality or alecture on the new concepts of space and time held in Bucharest in 1918. The e pistemological issues concern the intricate relation between nature and mathematical knowledge, in particular the question of irreversibility and objectivity(1921) as well as the subtle question whether what Hilbert calls the world equations are physicall y complete (1923). The last part deals with quantum theory in its early, advanced and mature stages. Hilbert held lecture courseson the mathematical foundations of quantum theory twice, before and after the breakthrough in 1926. These documents bear witne ss to one of the most dramatic changes in the foundations of science |

Note: | This volume contains a collection of articles applying methods of logic or, more generally, of mathematics to solve problems, some of which come from logic itself, others from other sciences. Its range of subjects is far fromcomplete, but broadly rep resentative. The first group of papers in this volume consists of contributions to pure and applied modal logic. The problems discussed here range from the structure of lattices of normal and other modalpropositional logics to modal proof theory and to th e semantics of quantified modal logic. The second group of papers deals with Many-valued logics - an extensive domain of strictly logical investigations rooting in philosophicalquestions concerning the nature of logical values. Logical investigations in c ognitive science have successfully utilized methods and systems of belief revision, non-monotonic logic and dynamic epistemic logic. Towards MathematicalPhilosophy deals with focal issues of belief revision. The volume concludes with contributions which m ay be seen to belong to the field of formal epistemology, the area applying logical, probabilistic, game-theoretic and other formalmethods to problems and issues in epistemology and philosophy of science, such as those concerning anti-realism, skepticism, theory comparison and theory choice, justification, sources of knowledge and learning theories |

Note: | The period in the foundations of mathematics that started in 1879 with the publication of Frege's Begriffsschrift and ended in 1931 with Gdel's ber formal unentscheidbare Stze der Principia Mathematica und verwandterSysteme I can reasonably be called the classical period. It saw the development of three major foundational programmes: the logicism of Frege, Russell and Whitehead, the intuitionism of Brouwer, and Hilbert's formalist andproof-theoretic programme. In this period, there were also lively e xchanges between the various schools culminating in the famous Hilbert-Brouwer controversy in the 1920s. The purpose of this anthology is to review the programmes inthe foundations of mathematics from the classical period and to assess their possible rele vance for contemporary philosophy of mathematics. What can we say, in retrospect, about the various foundational programmes of the classicalperiod and the disputes that took place between them? To what extent do the classical programmes of logicism, intui tionism and formalism represent options that are still alive today? These questions are addressed in this volume byleading mathematical logicians and philosophers of mathematics. The volume will be of interest primarily to researchers and graduate student s of philosophy, logic, mathematics and theoretical computer science. The material will beaccessible to specialists in these areas and to advanced graduate students in the respective fields |

Title: | Superior Beings If They Exist How Would We Know? [electronic resource] : Game-Theoretic Implications of Omniscience, Omnipotence, Immortality, and Incomprehensibility |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The central question posed in this book is: If there existed a superior being who possessed the supernatural qualities of omniscience, omnipotence, immortality, and incomprehensibility, how would he/she act differently from us?The mathematical theory of games is used to define each of these qualities, and different assumptions about the rules of play in several theological games that might be played between ordinary human beings and superior beings like Godare posited. Implications of these definitio ns and assumptions are developed and used to explore such questions as: are God's superior powers compatible with human free will? Can they be reconciled with the problem of evil in theworld? In what situation is God's existence decidable in gamelike rela tionships He migh have with us? By endowing omniscience/omnipotence/immortality/incomprehensibility with unambiguous meanings, the author shows how game theorycan help breathe life into questions that have been dismissed too quickly simply because they ar e metaphysical--outside the world of experience. Thereby he clarifies the structure of our thought about an ultimate reality, whether ornot it is viewed as religious. Reviews from the first edition: [Brams's] arguments, some of them quite complicated, are presented clearly and enough background information is given to enable the non-expert in game theory to followwhat is going on. - H.N.V. Temperley, Nature (March, 1984) Superior Beings is an extraordinary book... He [Brams] uses strikingly simple models and generally transparent logic to make some surprising inferences about superiority.His inquiry is carried out with great inventiveness and care, and his book is highly recommended to those interested in religion, philosophy, and the contribution of logi cal analysis. - D. Marc Kilgur, American Scientist (1984)Brams has performed a service in deominstrating that rational analysis need not stop where issues involving faith and emotion begin. - Pe |

Note: | Advance praise for 18 Unconventional Essays on the Nature of Mathematics: I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book does not treat mathematics as dessicated formal logic but as a living organism, immediatelyrecognizable to any working mathema tician. - Sir Michael Atiyah, University of Edinburgh A wonderful collection of essays on the philosophy of mathematics, some by mathematicians, others by philosophers, and all having significantthings to say. Most readers will be informed, some will be i nfuriated, but all will be stimulated. - John H. Conway, John von Neumann Distinguished Professor of Mathematics, Princeton University This startling new collection ofessays edited by Reuben Hersh contains frank facts and opinions from leading mathematici ans, philosophers, sociologists, cognitive scientists, and even an anthropologist. Each essay provides a challenging and thought-provoking look atrecent advances in the philosophy of mathematics, demonstrating the possibilities of thinking fresh, sticking close to actual practice, and fearlessly letting go of standard shibboleths. The following essays are included: * AlfredRenyi: Socratic Dialogue * Carlo Cellucci: Filosofia e Matematica, introduction * William Thurston: On Proof and Progress in Mathemati cs * Andrew Aberdein: The Informal Logic of Mathematical Proof * Yehuda Rav: Philosophical Problemsof Mathematics in Light of Evolutionary Epistemology * Brian Rotman: Towards a Semiotics of Mathematics * Donald Mackenzie: Computers and the Sociology of M athematical Proof * Terry Stanway: From G.H.H. and Littlewood to XML and Maple:Changing Needs and Expectations in Mathematical Knowledge Management * Rafael Nunez: Do Numbers Really Move? * Timothy Gowers: Does Mathematics Need a Philosophy? * Jody Azzoun i: How and Why Mathematics is a Social Practice *Gian-Carlo Rota: The Pernicious Influence of Mathematics Upon Philosophy * Jack Schwartz: The Pernicious Influence of Mathematics on Science * Alfons |
