About me
There are historical records which say that some of my ancestors lived in Crete until the 17th century. Now, Epimenides and Apostle Paul and many other people whom I trust, say that Cretans are liars. During my military service in a unit full of soldiers of Cretan descent, I came to believe that every Cretan's progeny also loves to lie. Since this, combined with the aforementioned historical records would make me a lover of lie in my eyes, I hope that Cretans always lie in their historical records - therefore that I have no Cretan ancestry after all. Now, my preceding remarks less the hope, are, strictly speaking, a historical record. But then they are either a historical record about a non-Cretan who hopes to say something untrue about his (alleged) Cretan descent, or a historical record of a Cretan, who hopes to say something untrue due to his being a Cretan. Therefore, the hope which I expressed, has the strength of the hope that I am a liar.

  1. Stamatios Gerogiorgakis (forthcoming). Mind the Croc! Rationality Gaps Vis-À-Vis the Crocodile Paradox. History and Philosophy of Logic:1-13.
    This article discusses rationality gaps triggered by self-referential/cyclic choice, the latter being understood as choosing according to a norm that refers to the choosing itself. The Crocodile Paradox is reformulated and analyzed as a game—named CP—whose Nash equilibrium is shown to trigger a cyclic choice and to invite a rationality gap. It is shown that choosing the Nash equilibrium of CP conforms to the principles Wolfgang Spohn and Haim Gaifman introduced to, allegedly, guarantee acyclicity but, in fact, does not prevent (...)

  3. Stamatios Gerogiorgakis (2014). Logic for the Decalogue. Sophia 53 (3):331-338.
    In this article, I offer two different formalizations for prescriptions which correspond to two different forms of biblical prohibitions. I discuss the known fact that the prohibitive commandments of the Decalogue according to the Septuagint and the Vulgate, Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, are formulated with normative future tense indicatives. However, the Greek and Latin sources provide in Mark 10:19 variants of five biblical prohibitive commandments which are formulated with prohibitive subjunctives. I argue that there are semantic differences between normative (...)

    I try to explain the difference between three kinds of negation: external negation, negation of the predicate and privation. Further I use polygons of opposition as heuristic devices to show that a logic which contains all three mentioned kinds of negation must be a fragment of a Łukasiewicz-four-valued predicate logic. I show, further, that, this analysis can be elaborated so as to comprise additional kinds of privation. This would increase the truth-values in question and bring fragments of (more generally speaking) (...)

  10. Stamatios Gerogiorgakis (2011). Omniscience in Łukasiewicz's, Kleene's and Blau's Three-Valued Logics. Polish Journal of Philosophy 5 (1):59-78.
    In this paper several assumptions concerning omniscience and future contingents on the one side, and omniscience and self-reference on the other, areexamined with respect to a classical and a three-valued semantic setting (the latter pertains especially to Łukasiewicz’s, Kleene’s and Blau’s three-valued logics).Interesting features of both settings are highlighted and their basic assumptions concerning omniscience are explored. To generate a context in which the notion of omniscience does not deviate from some basic intuitions, two special futurity operators are introduced in (...)

  11. Stamatios Gerogiorgakis (2009). The Byzantine Liar. History and Philosophy of Logic 30 (4):313-330.
    An eleventh-century Greek text, in which a fourth-century patristic text is discussed, gives an outline of a solution to the Liar Paradox. The eleventh-century text is probably the first medieval treatment of the Liar. Long passages from both texts are translated in this article. The solution to the Liar Paradox, which they entail, is analysed and compared with the results of modern scholarship on several Latin solutions to this paradox. It is found to be a solution, which bears some analogies (...)

    As far as the law of preservation of matter and the existence of ether are concerned, Kant, Lomonossow and Lavoisier had very similar views. Nevertheless, according to historical evidence they worked out their theories never taking each other's results for granted. Whereas it is well known that Lavoisier did not base his experiments on the former ones by Lomonossow, it has been argued that Kant based his philosophy of nature on Lavoisier's experiments. I try to show here, that Kant had (...)
