“Logic and Grand Central Station”

3–5 p.m. on April 29 (CST)

Abstract The areas and subareas of philosophy are joined by various kinds of connection: conceptual, methodological, doctrinal. Some areas may have relatively few connections with others. And to get from some areas to others, you may have to go through other areas. But in the end, all the areas link up somehow or other. For various reasons, logic plays a distinctive and central role in these connections. In this essay I will examine a number of issues in philosophy to show this.
