2014: Abstractionism / Neologicism

Neologicism pursues Frege’s goal of finding a logical foundation for arithmetic by replacing his famously inconsistent Basic Law V with different resources: so-called abstraction principles, understood as implicit definitions.Since the 1983 publication of Crispin Wright’s Frege’s Conception of Numbers as Objects, the literature developing and criticizing this program has exploded.The 2014 UConn Logic Workshop will pursue current work on this project.
