THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LOGIC, RATIONALITY AND INTERACTION

October 28 – 31, 2015
Department of Philosophy,
National Taiwan University
Taipei, Taiwan

Institute of Philosophy of Mind and Cognition,
National Yang Ming University
Taipei, Taiwan

Conference Website: https://www.yoursaas.cc/websites/36224472513387025486/home.html

The LORI workshop series aims at bringing together researchers working on a wide variety of logic-related fields that concern the understanding of rationality and interaction. These fields include Game Theory and Decision Theory, Philosophy (in particular Epistemology), Linguistics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence. The series aims at fostering a view of Logic as an interdisciplinary endeavor, and supports the creation of an East-Asian community of interdisciplinary researchers.

Is there disagreement? That is, do we really disagree? From the standpoint of everyday life, the answer seems to be clear. Disagreements among us are legion: about scientific, political, and social questions, about questions of right conduct and religion, about questions concerning subjective preferences and aesthetic taste. From the standpoint of rationality, however, it is not so clear how these disagreements should be assessed. Shouldn’t the forceless force of the better argument carry the day in almost all cases of disagreement? Isn’t it possible in principle to determine which view is the better one among rival views? Aren’t disagreements better seen, therefore, as intermediate stages on the way toward a more comprehensive agreement – at least among all those who conduct themselves rationally? If not, can a disagreement itself be rational, even when two interlocutors share the same epistemic presuppositions and the same relevant information? Is “reasonable disagreement” an enduring feature of our practices and reaches deeper than we generally assume? What is the theoretical and practical relevance of persistent disagreement? Does the latter lead to the acceptance of relativism, skepticism, or pluralism? (more…)

Co-located with KR 2012, DL 2012, KiBP 2012, CILC 2012, AI*IA 2012

Rome, Italy

AIMS AND SCOPE

The NMR workshop series is the premier specialized forum for researchers in
non-monotonic reasoning and related areas. This will be the 14th workshop in
the series. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area
of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about
actions, argumentation, declarative programming, preferences, non-monotonic
reasoning for ontologies, uncertainty, and other related topics.

In this year, NMR will share a joint session together with the International
Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2012).

TOPICS

NMR 2012 welcomes the submission of papers broadly centered on issues and
research in non-monotonic reasoning. We welcome papers of either a
theoretical or practical nature. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to): (more…)

The fifth North American Summer School of Logic, Language, and Information, NASSLLI 2012, will be hosted at the University of Texas at Austin, on June 18–22, 2012.

Overview

NASSLLI is a one-week summer school aimed at formally-minded graduate students in Philosophy, Computer Science, Linguistics, Psychology, and related fields, especially students whose interests cross over traditional boundaries between these domains. The summer school is loosely modeled on the long-running ESSLLI series in Europe; it consists of a number of courses and workshops which, by default, meet for 90 minutes on each of five days.

Courses

In the main week of the school, students select up to five courses from among twenty that are offered. Of these courses, five are from specially invited lecturers, and the remainder are researchers selected because they are leaders in their fields and also because they have proven ability to communicate with interdisciplinary audiences. These instructors were selected after a public call for course proposals and a peer review process by the program committee, which is drawn from a wide range of specialities including linguistics, philosophy, and computer science. Over 45 course proposals were submitted for NASSLLI 2012. These were high quality proposals by established scholars, mostly tenured or tenure-track at research universities, and many strong proposals had to be rejected. The acceptance rate for course proposals was 30%. (more…)

In this interesting installment of the always wonderful PhilosophyTV, Alvin Goldman and Jennifer Lackey discuss the up-and-coming subfield of social epistemology.  Their discussion ranges from the history of the subfield to some of its current topics. It is worth watching for argumentation theorists–especially those based in philosophy–because it represents what amounts to a completely different way of thinking about the epistemic import of human interaction–especially disagreement–than one typically finds in argumentation theory. Whereas there might have been a time when those in the informal logic movement could have rightly claimed to be the only group of philosophers working on these sorts of issues, things have changed dramatically in the last 10 years.  This, I think, is something those of us who know, love, and believe in informal logic should consider fairly seriously. The growing philosophical consciousness of subfields like social epistemology, the logic of belief revision, and non-monotonic logics in general over the past decade or so has definite methodological implications for the work that we do.  At the very least it is a substantial change in a key subset of the audience to which we often address our claims.  Might a change in the rhetoric of informal logic be in the offing?

The video is roughly an hour and fifteen minutes long.  Enjoy!
