Abstract

We are pleased to release this digital edition of Ralph Johnson’s The Rise of Informal Logic as Volume 2 in the series Windsor Studies in Argumentation. This edition is a reprint of the previous Vale Press edition with some minor corrections.We have decided to make this the second volume in the series because it is such a compelling account of the formation of informal logic as a discipline, written by one of the founders of the field. The book includes essential chapters on the history and development of informal logic. Other chapters are key reflections on the theoretical issues raised by the attempt to understand informal argument. Many of the papers were previously published in important journals. A number of them were co-authored with J. Anthony Blair. Three of them have appeared only in the present book.

Abstract

En el libro se analiza la problemática lógico-filosófica que se da entre los formalismos lógicos y el lenguaje natural, tratando de responder a la pregunta de si es posible formalizar la lógica natural o de sentido común. Se comienza presentando una caracterización de la lógica natural, su primer intento de formalización por J. Piaget y R. García, las limitaciones del mismo, el análisis de los obstáculos epistemológicos que se presentan en su enseñanza mostrando que estos concuerdan con ciertos resultados de la psicología experimental. En los capítulos siguientes se presentan los distintos sistemas formales creados con el objetivo de ampliar el campo de la lógica clásica para dar cuenta de dominios de lenguaje no incluidos en ella. El texto culmina con un capítulo de reflexión filosófica sobre el significado de las constantes lógicas y sobre la problemática de por qué y cómo enseñar lógica.

Abstract

The essays presented here are the outcome of research carried out by members of IFILNOVA (Institute for Philosophy of New University of Lisbon) in 2016.

The IFILNOVA Permanent Seminar seeks to show how values are relevant to humans (both socially and individually). This seminar is the ‘place’ where different research will converge towards a unified viewpoint. This includes the discussion of the following questions: What is the philosophical contribution to current affairs and decisions that depend crucially on values? Can philosophy make a difference, namely by bringing practical reason to bear on these affairs and decision? And how to do it? Which are our scientific ‘allies’ in this enterprise; psychology, communication sciences, even sociology and history?

This volume shows the connection between practical rationality and values and covers the dimensions ethics, aesthetics and politics.
