Imaginable Impossibilities and Thought Experiments

A brand-new special issue on the history of Logical Reasoning

Many of these challenges have to do with a reconsideration and redefinition of disciplinary boundaries, and thus call into question the very idea of the history of logic as a discipline. To this purpose I have solicited contributions from friends and colleagues, high- lighting new research directions in this exciting field.

You may find some beautiful contributions on the history of logical reasoning by Silvia Di Vincenzo, Jacob Archambault, Enrico Donato, Georgina Rabassó, Mariken Teeuwen, Costanza Larese. Read or download the open-access issue here:

The work leading to the editing this issue has been possible thanks to the funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 845061. This issue is primarily related to two main areas of research within this project: (1) medieval logic and (2) reasoning about the impossible
