    Susan Stebbing’s Logical Interventionism.Alexander X. Douglas & Jonathan Nassim - 2021 - History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (2):101-117.
    We examine a contribution L. Susan Stebbing made to the understanding of critical thinking and its relation to formal logic. Stebbing took expertise in formal logic to authorise logical intervention in public debate, specifically in assessing of the validity of everyday reasoning. She held, however, that formal logic is purely the study of logical form. Given the problems of ascertaining logical form in any particular instance, and that logical form does not always track informal validity, it is difficult to see (...)

    In What Sense is J.N. Findlay the Founding Father of Tense-Logic?David Jakobsen - 2021 - History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (2):180-188.
    In 1954, A. N. Prior discovered a way to formalize tense-logic—as such, there is no doubt that he is the father of modern tense-logic. Despite this, he considered his early teacher in philosophy and logic, J. N. Findlay, to be, in a sense, the father of modern tense-logic. This title has been disputed, and it has been argued that Findlay merely had the luck of inspiring Prior’s invention through an important footnote in an article on time from 1941. However, others (...)

    On Reading Leśniewski.Sen Wong - 2021 - History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (2):160-179.
    Leśniewski is known for his pedantry and idiosyncratic notation, which make it extremely difficult to read and follow. As reading comes before understanding, this paper therefore attempts only one thing, that is, to reveal and explain the framework of his basic logic, viz. Protothetic, in an adequate fashion without committing the sin of creating too much noise by supplying too much detailed information.

    Critical Thinking: J. Haber, Cambridge, MA and London: MIT Press, 2020. Xviii + 207 Pp. $15.95. ISBN 978-0-262-53828-2. [REVIEW]B. Musametov - 2021 - History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (1):97-99.
    In modern socio-economic conditions, one of the priority areas of higher education is the training of a competent specialist with a high culture of thinking, capable of independently making responsible and professional decisions, and acting creatively in non-standard situations. Haber argues that critical thinking (hereafter – CT) is an indispensable skill to achieve this goal; moreover, current global burning issues point out that ‘acquiring and applying this skill is vital to our survival as a society’ (xiii). So, Haber presents his (...)

    Saving the Square of Opposition.Pieter A. M. Seuren - 2021 - History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (1):72-96.
    Contrary to received opinion, the Aristotelian Square of Opposition (square) is logically sound, differing from standard modern predicate logic (SMPL) only in that it restricts the universe U of cognitively constructible situations by banning null predicates, making it less unnatural than SMPL. U-restriction strengthens the logic without making it unsound. It also invites a cognitive approach to logic. Humans are endowed with a cognitive predicate logic (CPL), which checks the process of cognitive modelling (world construal) for consistency. The square is (...)
