CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue of "Philosophies" on logic, inference, probability, and paradox

Special Issue "Logic, Inference, Probability and Paradox"

Philosophies- international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI 
(ISSN 2409-9287).

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 July 2017

Guest Editors:

Reasoning with uncertain knowledge is a growing area of interest, involving several tendencies, 
such as reasoning with non-standard theories of probability (e.g., theories of probability based 
on non-classical logics) and combining argumentation systems with probabilities or probabilistic 
semantics. All such tendencies and areas of investigation are naturally generalized to possibility 
systems and other credal calculi. This poses new and intriguing questions on the philosophy of 
probability and credal calculi in general, amplifying the discussions around the correct formal 
theories of probability and on the interpretations of probability, among the classical, logical, 
frequentist, propensity, and subjectivist (and possibly others). Dilemmas and paradoxes in 
probabilities and credal calculi are also a relevant area of research. This Special Issue intends 
to contribute to the state-of-the-art of such research topics by gathering together the 
contribution of authors in interconnected areas including logical, mathematical and conceptual 


Manuscripts should be submitted online at

by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the 
submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published 
continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. 
Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, 
a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement,
on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration 
for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed 
through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission 
of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Philosophies is an international 
peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

All papers are invited in the following (non-exclusive) topics:

-interpretations of probability, possibility and other credal calculi -philosophy of probability, 
possibility and other credal calculi -probabilistic and possibilistic argumentation and inference 
-probability, possibility and uncertain reasoning -paradoxes in probability, possibility and other 
credal calculi
