(p.305) Chapter 10 Finding the right logic
The Taming of the True

Neil Tennant

Oxford University Press

This chapter aims to justify logic as a body of analytic truths and inferential principles. The difference with this choice of logic from the standpoint of semantic anti-realism is that it insists not only on the usual constructivism but it also provides new grounds for insisting relevance between the premises and conclusion of a logically correct argument. This chapter also discusses a canon of constructive inference and provides an account of cognitive significance that shows how good scientific sense is rooted in the sensible.

Keywords:   analytic truth, inferential principles, logic, semantic anti-realism, constructivism, constructive inference
