Handbook of the History of Logic

The Handbook of the History of Logic is a multi-volume research instrument that brings to the development of logic the best in modern techniques of historical a...nd interpretative scholarship. The following is the planned order of the Handbook's nine volumes.Greek, Indian and Arabic LogicThe Rise of Modern Logic: From Leibniz to FregeLogic and the Modalities in the Twentieth CenturyThe Many Valued and Non-monotonic Turn in LogicLogic from Russell to GödelLogic: A History of its Central ConceptsThe Emergence of Classical LogicBritish Logic in the Nineteenth CenturyMediaeval and Renaissance LogicThe Handbook is the first work in English in which the history of logic is presented so extensively. The volumes are numerous and large. Authors have been given considerable latitude to produce chapters of a length, and a level of detail, that would lay fair claim on the ambitions of the project to be a definitive research work. Authors have been carefully selected with this aim in mind. They and the Editors join in the conviction that a knowledge of the history of logic is nothing but beneficial to the subject's present-day research programmes. One of the attractions of the Handbook's several volumes is the emphasis they give to the enduring relevance of developments in logic throughout the ages, including some of the earliest manifestations of the subject.The Handbook of the History of Logic will be necessary reading for researchers, and graduate and senior undergraduate students in logic in all its forms, argumentation theory, AI and computer science, cognitive psychology and neuroscience, linguistics, forensics, philosophy and the philosophy and the history of philosophy, and the history of ideas.
