    What to Say When There Is Nothing to Talk About.Mircea Dumitru & Frederick Kroon - 2008 - Critica 40 (120):97-109.
    In Reference without Referents, Mark Sainsbury aims to provide an account of reference that honours the common-sense view that sentences containing empty names like "Vulcan" and "Santa Claus" are entirely intelligible, and that many such sentences -"Vulcan doesn't exist", "Many children believe that Santa Claus will give them presents at Christmas", etc.- are literally true. Sainsbury's account endorses the Davidsonian program in the theory of meaning, and combines this with a commitment to Negative Free Logic, which holds that all simple (...)

    Representing Voting Rules in Łukasiewicz’s Three-Valued Logic.Adrian Miroiu & Mircea Dumitru - 2022 - Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics 32 (1):72-88.
    We show how voting rules like the simple and the absolute majority rules, unanimity, consensus, etc. can be represented as logical operators in Łukasiewicz’s three-valued logic. First, we prove tha...

    Conceivability and Possibility: Remarks on the Mind-Body Dualism in Contemporary Philosophy of Mind.Mircea Dumitru - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 42:53-60.
    Explaining phenomenal consciousness may be the scientific and philosophical problem of our time, the last frontier of knowledge. This is not at all an easy task. For any serious attempt at finding a place for consciousness within the natural world was not successful so far. There is a conceptual tension here which makes this business of coming up with a unified (monist) explanation of mind and physical world one of the most intriguing mystery. The most predominant image of the natural (...)

  7. On Incompleteness in Modal Logic. An Account Through Second-Order Logic.Mircea Dumitru - 1998 - Dissertation, Tulane University
    The dissertation gives a second-order-logic-based explanation of modal incompleteness. The leading concept is that modal incompleteness is to be explained in terms of the incompleteness of standard second-order logic, since modal language is basically a second-order language. The development of Kripke-style semantics for modal logic has been underpinned by the conjecture that all modal systems are characterizable by classes of frames defined by first-order conditions on a binary relation. However, the discovery of certain incomplete modal systems has undermined the all-encompassing (...)

    Ordinary Expressions Have No Exact and Systematic Logic.Mircea Dumitru - 2009 - Organon F: Medzinárodný Časopis Pre Analytickú Filozofiu 16 (4):542-551.
    The general slogan in the title of this paper gives a general, but nevertheless accurate, expression of Strawson’s view concerning the nature of formal logic per se in relation to natural language. What is at stake here is the extent to which the formal methods and the formal semantics of contemporary symbolic logic can render the meanings of natural language expressions. Strawson sets up an agenda for logical theory which, although rather dated for a logic text, is what one naturally (...)

    On Toleration, Charity, and Epistemic Fallibilism.Mircea Dumitru - 2011 - Balkan Journal of Philosophy 3 (2):177-182.
    In this paper I examine some presuppositions of toleration and pluralism. I explore two models, viz. a deontological and a consequentialist model, respectively, which could support the view that rational agents should act in a tolerant way. Against the background which is offered by the first model I give two arguments in favor of the view that people are better off and more rational if they act in a tolerant way. The first argument draws upon a principle of charity which (...)

    Despre tolerantã, pluralism si recunoasterea celorlalti/ On Tolerance, Pluralism and the Recognition of Others.Mircea Dumitru - 2005 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 4 (10):12-18.
    The paper examines some presuppositions of toleration and pluralism and explores two models, a deontological and a consequentialist model, that could support the view that rational agents should act in a tolerant way. Within the first model two arguments are given in favor of the view that people are better off and more rational if they are tolerant. The first argument draws upon a principle of charity that one usually makes use of in philosophy of mind and philosophy of language, (...)
