Entry “Logical Laws” The Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Routledge, 1998.
This is an introductory essay on the notion of a “Logical Law.” In it, I show that there are three important different questions one can ask about logical laws. Firstly, what it means to be a logical law. Secondly, what makes something a logical law, and thirdly, what are the logical laws. Each of these questions are answered differently by different people. I sketch the important differences in views, and point the way ahead for logical research.
