A close-up view of the Old Quad and Arts West at the University of Melbourne
My usual talk (a close-up view of the Old Quad and Arts West at the University of Melbourne).

Abstract: In this talk, I will place contemporary research in philosophical logic in a wider historical and philosophical context, showing how recent work in logic connects to the rivalry between Platonism and Nominalism, or realism and anti-realism in metaphysics, and between representationalism and inferentialism in the the philosophy of language. Along the way, I will touch on the contemporary resurgence of interest in Carnap’s logical positivism, and Robert Brandom’s turn toward Hegel.
