## On second order propositional logic of open subsets of the real lineIt is known that the algebra of open subsets of the real line constitutes a sound and complete semantics for intuitionistic propositional logic, IPC. IPC has PSPACE complete set of tautologies. However, if we add quantification over propositions then the resulting logic,... |

## Separate common causes and EPR correlation - a no-go resultBell's theorem derives empirically testable (in fact, falsifiable) inequalities from seemingly natural assumptions regarding models of EPR correlations. The assumption which is usually rejected is that of Outcome Independence (OI), related to Reichenbach's Common... |

10 December 2010 | Lecture |
## Relevant Logic and Classical ProofsAdaptive logicians have long treated mathematical theories using non-monotonic logical techniques. Other non-classical logicians are just starting to come around to this idea. In order to have a set theory that is powerful enough, for example, to act as a basis for model... |

## Aristotle's Fall -- Corruptions in the History of LogicIn 1968, in his Inaugural Lecture as the occupant of the first Chair in Logic at the University of Leeds, Peter Geach describes a Fall from Grace. He describes “a disaster, comparable to the Fall of Adam”. This Fall was Aristotle’s invention of Logic. Geach isn’t talking... |

## Predicate wormism -- A quinean account of de re modalityIn ‘Worlds away’ W.V.Quine attempts to shew that possible worlds, unlike times, cannot provide robust continuity conditions for the sort of ordinary objects that we want to talk about. Quine thinks of individuals as ‘worms’ constructed as strings of events over times and... |

## Third Workshop on the Philosophy of InformationAn ambitious project like the philosophy of information cannot operate in isolation. Not only does it have to rely on input from the sciences of information and computation, it also needs to convince those who are sympathetic to the project (including those who had been... |
