Responding to: Anna Wrote: > "Perhaps logic is plural and new logics may be developed ?"
GSC response:"There is much to explore in that idea. Unfortunately, the 'language of pure prose' is, by and large, an inadequate vehicle to enable any such exploration."
These questions come to mind:
Why do you think that idea of creating new logic s limited to the "language of pure prose?"
Why do you think it is an "inadequate vehicle to enable any such exploration?"
Where did the forms of logic used by many scholars come from in the first place ?
Why cannot new logic forms be developed that intersect well with Maths?
