Logic and philosophy of science

Main page

Research field „Logic and Philosophy of Science” is made up of scientists associated primarily with the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in ToruĊ„, and a significant part of the field's staff are employees of the Department of Logic.

The issues we deal with within the research field are:

- non-classical logics (paraconsistent, binding, positional, deontic, epistemic, non-monotonic, etc.)

- application of logic to build formal theories (mereology, pointless geometries, etc.)

- constructing and applying logical systems to formalizing the theory of social sciences and humanities

- related to the above problems of the philosophy of language and pragmatics

- general philosophy of science.

As a research group, we cooperate with research centers from the United States, China, Brazil, Australia, and many European countries. We co-organize, among others cyclical Non-Classical Logics conference, Philosophical Perspectives on Sciences conference and Chinese-Polish Workshop on Applied Logic.
