CALL FOR PAPERS: book on "Modern Logic, 1850-1950, East and West"

http://www.springer.com/series/7391

We invite submissions for a special volume in the series Studies in
 Universal Logic http://www.springer.com/series/7391

 on the topic: Modern Logic 1850-1950, East and West.

 This volume honors Irving Anellis (1946-2013), founder of the journal *Modern
 Logic* (subsequently *The Review of Modern Logic*) whose more than 140
 articles, books, and edited works span the entire history of modern logic.

 Topics for the special issue include but are not limited to:

 1. Mathematical logic: proof theory and meta-mathematics, applications of
 logic to mathematical structures.
 2. Work of Bertrand Russell in set theory and logic, and of Charles Sanders
 Peirce in algebra and algebraic logic.
 3. History of proof theory, especially in respect to the Loewenheim-Skolem
 Theorem and Herbrand's Fundamental theorem; logic trees; natural deduction.
 4. History of logic and mathematics in the Soviet Union and Russia.

 Extended versions of work previously published in conference proceedings
 can be submitted but authors should make it clear how their submission
 improves upon the conference publication.

 Papers should be submitted by email as a .pdf attachment to both guest
 editors:

 Francine F. Abeles: fabeles@kean.edu
 Mark E. Fuller: mark.fuller@uwc.edu

 The deadline for submission is: 31 May 2014.
