  • C- MLAG V : The Logical Alien at 20 (Porto, 13-14 Junho 2011)

    Are there forms of thought alien to us, but home to others? Is our form of thought just one among many? Or is it (in essentials) the form of thought per se? Are these even sensible issues? Descartes, Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein, among many, were exercized by such questions. 20 years ago, a landmark paper by James Conant, In Search of Logically Alien Thought, gave illuminating perspective to these issues. In this conference, some of the most insightful current writers in the area look at the state of the issues today.
