The Conference will be the last event organised during the AHRC-funded Foundations of Logical 
Consequence project, and so will aim to bring together all the themes considered during the project.
The overall goal has been to clarify the foundations of logical consequence. Are these absolute or 
relative, or pluralist? Are the 'laws of thought' universal, topic-invariant, and certain, or are 
they relative to context, or are there different admissible senses of validity? Is pluralism a form 
of relativism? Should the foundations be essentially model-theoretic, or proof-theoretic, or some 
hybrid of the two, or is there a third way, e.g., deflationary? Is there a clear conception of a 
logical constant, such that all consequence is formal, or are there different logics for different 
concepts, modal, temporal, epistemic and so on? Further issues concern the relata of the 
consequence relation: are they sentences, propositions, utterances, statements or states of 
affairs? are they sets of such relata, or multi-sets, or sequences? are they finite or can they be 
infinite? Moreover, what of the epistemology of inference? How do the competing accounts of logical
consequence, and of the meanings of the logical constants, respectively, connect with the 
justification of logical principles? The aim is to bring together researchers in these fields to 
share their findings, reach conclusions, and provide a stimulus to further research.
