Realismo lógico e a metafísica da lógica

Evelyn Erickson

ABOUT THE PUBLICATION

Evelyn has translated Michaela Markham McSweeney's article Logical Realism and the Metaphysics of Logic into Portuguese. The translation is published in the journal Perspectiva Filosófic.

ABSTRACT OF ORIGINAL ARTICLE

‘Logical Realism’ is taken to mean many different things. I argue that if reality has a privileged structure, then a view I call metaphysical logical realism is true. The view says that, first, there is ‘One True Logic’; second, that the One True Logic is made true by the mind‐and‐language‐independent world; and third, that the mind‐and‐language‐independent world makes it the case that the One True Logic is better than any other logic at capturing the structure of reality. Along the way, I discuss a few alternatives, and clarify two distinct kinds of metaphysical logical realism.
