Thinking and Rationality
Workshop organized by
Juliana Bueno Soler
Contemporary logic with its plethora of systems for approaching topics such as reasoning about truth, about knowledge, about belief, about preference, and for reasoning under more liberal attitudes (by dropping certain classical laws) such as in reasoning under constructive paradigms (intuitionism), reasoning under contradictions (paraconsistency), multi-alethic reasoning (many-valuedness), reasoning under uncertainty (fuzzyness), and so on, can be confronted and complemented with other tools for modeling decision making and intelligent interaction that take into account the information states of agents and the information flow such as belief revision, preference revision, multimodal and dynamics logics, reasoning in societies against individual reasoning, etc.
But, on the other hand, abandoning some classical laws and adding a dynamic side to logics has the price of imposing more severe constraints for the mathematical and formal rendering of logics. How this affects rationality and the foundational aspects of the idea of critical thinking? if we accept not to have a unique theory of rationality, how could we then expect to reason collectively as in science and, collective decisions and in dialogical argumentation? This workshop aims at discussing the philosophical and logical roots of thinking and rationality broadly conceived, as well as their connections to contemporary logic and information.
