2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: "Logic and Cognition", 13-17 Aug 2012, Opolo, POLAND

ESSLLI Workshop

Workshop Description:

The roots of logic go back to antiquity, where it was mostly used as a tool for analyzing human 
argumentation. In the 19th century Gottlob Frege, one of the founders of modern logic and analytic 
philosophy, introduced anti-psychologism in the philosophy of mathematics. In the following years 
anti-psychologism, the view that the nature of mathematical truth is independent of human ideas, 
was one of the philosophical driving forces behind the success of mathematical logic.
During the same period in the 19th century, also modern psychology (Helmholtz, Wundt) was born. 
However, Frege?s notion of anti-psychologism often stood in the way of a potential merge of the 
disciplines and led to a significant separation between logic and psychology research agendas and 
methods. Only since the 1960s, together with the growth of cognitive science inspired by the 'mind 
as computer' metaphor, the two disciplines have started to interact more and more. Today, we 
finally observe an increase in the collaborative effort between logicians, computer scientists, 
linguists, cognitive scientists, and psychologists.

We plan to discuss the empirical research motivated by logical theories as well as logics inspired 
by experimental studies. As a result, we hope to contribute towards an increase in collaboration 
between logicians and cognitive scientists.

The meeting is partially sponsored by a Vici grant NWO-277-80-001

Invited speakers:

Paul Egr
Iris van Rooij

The workshop will take place as part of the 24th European Summer School in Logic, Language and 
Information (ESSLLI 2012): http://www.esslli2012.pl/

Submissions Details:

included (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 ). If needed due to 
space reasons, technical material such as proofs may be added in an appendix of at most 5 pages. 
The PDF files have to be uploaded online via the workshop?s submission website:
