    1. The Notion of Logical Consequence
    Chair: Tommaso Piazza
    — Mikko Yrjönsuuri (Jyväskylä)
    — Ricardo Santos (Lisboa)

    First session within the series Medieval and Contemporary Philosophy in Dispute

    In this first session, a topic in Logic will be discussed: theories of consequence. The speakers invited will engage in discussion from the vantage point of their own fields of expertise, as well as their own personal views. It is the aim of this series to stimulate a dialogue between medieval and contemporary views on a variety of philosophical subjects, by bringing together scholars who develop work on such issues from both frameworks. The debate will be open to the audience.


    Mikko Yrjönsuuri is Full Professor of Medieval Philosophy at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland)
    Ricardo Santos is Professor of Logic at the Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal)
    Tommaso Piazza is Professor of Epistemology at the Universitá degli studi di Pavia (Italia)

    A second debate on a Metaphysical topic and to cover the subject Carving Out the World will be scheduled soon. 

    Next session of this series: 16th November 2019 On Coming to Know: Epistemology.

    Organisers: José Meirinhos (Porto) — Tommaso Piazza (Pavia) — Vítor Guerreiro (Porto).
