Bergen Logic Group


The Bergen Logic Group is a research group at the Department of Philosophy. The group's research area includes formal logic, philosophy of logic, theory of argumentation, and rationality. At the moment, the group is responsible for three externally funded research projects, and is one out of three research groups designated for seed funding from the Faculty of Humanities in the period 2019-2021.

In addition to workshops and conferences, the group organizes a regular work in progress seminar. Check out the calendar for more information.

The members of the group currently teach the logic courses in the Department of Philosophy: LOG110 (Introduction to formal logic), LOG111 (Deduction and metalogic) og LOG112 (Introduction to philosophical logic). The group also leads a teaching project funded by DIKU that aims to develop a new learning design for argumentation theory in examen philosophicum. [Pål Antonsen, Ole Hjortland].
