    Simplex Sigillum Veri: Peano, Frege, and Peirce on the Primitives of Logic.Francesco Bellucci, Amirouche Moktefi & Ahti-Veikko Pietarinen - 2018 - History and Philosophy of Logic 39 (1):80-95.
    We propose a reconstruction of the constellation of problems and philosophical positions on the nature and number of the primitives of logic in four authors of the nineteenth century logical scene: Peano, Padoa, Frege and Peirce. We argue that the proposed reconstruction forces us to recognize that it is in at least four different senses that a notation can be said to be simpler than another, and we trace the origins of these four senses in the writings of these authors.

  2. La Logique Symbolique En Débat À Oxford À la Fin du XIXe Siècle : Les Disputes Logiques de Lewis Carroll Et John Cook Wilson.Mathieu Marion & Amirouche Moktefi - 2014 - Revue D’Histoire des Sciences 67 (2):185-205.
    The development of symbolic logic is often presented in terms of a cumulative story of consecutive innovations that led to what is known as modern logic. This narrative hides the difficulties that this new logic faced at first, which shaped its history. Indeed, negative reactions to the emergence of the new logic in the second half of the nineteenth century were numerous and we study here one case, namely logic at Oxford, where one finds Lewis Carroll, a mathematical teacher who (...)

    Visual Reasoning with Diagrams.Sun-Joo Shin & Amirouche Moktefi (eds.) - 2013 - Basel: Birkhaüser.
    Logic, the discipline that explores valid reasoning, does not need to be limited to a specific form of representation but should include any form as long as it allows us to draw sound conclusions from given information. The use of diagrams has a long but unequal history in logic: The golden age of diagrammatic logic of the 19th century thanks to Euler and Venn diagrams was followed by the early 20th century's symbolization of modern logic by Frege and Russell. Recently, (...)

    On the Origin of Venn Diagrams.Amirouche Moktefi & Jens Lemanski - forthcoming - Axiomathes:1-14.
    In this paper we argue that there were several currents, ideas and problems in 19th-century logic that motivated John Venn to develop his famous logic diagrams. To this end, we first examine the problem of uncertainty or over-specification in syllogistic that became obvious in Euler diagrams. In the 19th century, numerous logicians tried to solve this problem. The most famous was the attempt to introduce dashed circles into Euler diagrams. The solution that John Venn developed for this problem, however, came (...)

    Making Sense of Schopenhauer's Diagram of Good and Evil.Jens Lemanski & Amirouche Moktefi - 2018 - In Stapleton G. Chapman P. (ed.), Diagrammatic Representation and Inference10th International Conference, Diagrams 2018, Edinburgh, UK, June 18-22, 2018, Proceedings. Cham, Schweiz: Springer. pp. 721-724.
    It is little known that Schopenhauer (1788–1860) made thorough use of Euler diagrams in his works. One specific diagram depicts a high number of concepts in relation to Good and Evil. It is, hence, uncharacteristic as logicians of that time seldom used diagrams for more than three terms (the number demanded by syllogisms). The objective of this paper is to make sense of this diagram by explaining its function and inquiring whether it could be viewed as an early serious attempt (...)

    On the Diagrammatic Representation of Existential Statements with Venn Diagrams.Amirouche Moktefi & Ahti-Veikko Pietarinen - 2015 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 24 (4):361-374.
    It is of common use in modern Venn diagrams to mark a compartment with a cross to express its non-emptiness. Modern scholars seem to derive this convention from Charles S. Peirce, with the assumption that it was unknown to John Venn. This paper demonstrates that Venn actually introduced several methods to represent existentials but felt uneasy with them. The resistance to formalize existentials was not limited to diagrammatic systems, as George Boole and his followers also failed to provide a satisfactory (...)

    Here are considered the conditions under which the method of diagrams is liable to include non-classical logics, among which the spatial representation of non-bivalent negation. This will be done with two intended purposes, namely: a review of the main concepts involved in the definition of logical negation; an explanation of the epistemological obstacles against the introduction of non-classical negations within diagrammatic logic.

    Why Make Things Simple When You Can Make Them Complicated? An Appreciation of Lewis Carroll’s Symbolic Logic.Amirouche Moktefi - 2021 - Logica Universalis 15 (3):359-379.
    Lewis Carroll published a system of logic in the symbolic tradition that developed in his time. Carroll’s readers may be puzzled by his system. On the one hand, it introduced innovations, such as his logic notation, his diagrams and his method of trees, that secure Carroll’s place on the path that shaped modern logic. On the other hand, Carroll maintained the existential import of universal affirmative Propositions, a feature that is rather characteristic of traditional logic. The object of this paper (...)

    La théorie syllogistique de Lewis Carroll.Amirouche Moktefi - 2010 - Les Cahiers Philosophiques de Strasbourg 28:207-224.
    Le syllogisme est la forme classique d’un argument logique tel qu’on le retrouve dans la logique traditionnelle issue d’Aristote. Objet de nombreux travaux en deux millénaires, la syllogistique reste la doctrine dominante en logique jusqu’au XIXe siècle. Les syllogismes y sont présentés sous une forme simple et élémentaire : trois propositions sous forme normale, construites de sorte que la troisième découle nécessairement des deux premières (dites...

    The Productive Ambiguity of Venn’s Three Circles.Jens Lemanski & Amirouche Moktefi - 2020 - In Kristof Nyiri, András Benedek & Petra Aczel (eds.), How Images Behave: 9th Budapest Visual Learning Conference, Budapest, 26 November 2020. Hungarian Academy of Sciences. pp. 245-248.
    It is not rare to meet in scientific literature with a figure made of three circles, intersecting in such a way as to delineate all the combinations of the components that they stand for. This figure is commonly known as a ‘Venn diagram’ or ‘Venn’s three circles’. In this paper, we argue that many so-called Venn diagrams found in modern scientific literature do not truly depict intersections, and hence, are not true Venn diagrams.
