The law of non-contradiction : new philosophical essays( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive debate about the Law of Non-Contradiction (LNC), from discussions as to how the law is to be understood, to reasons for accepting or re-thinking the law, and to issues that raise challenges to the law, such as the Liar Paradox, and a 'dialetheic' resolution of that paradox
Logical pluralism by J. C Beall( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book J.C. Beall and Greg Restall present and defend what they call logical pluralism, arguing that the notion of logical consequence doesn't pin down one deductive consequence relation; it allows for many of them. In particular, they argue that broadly classical, intuitionistic, and relevant accounts of deductive logic are genuine logical consequence relations; we should not search for one true logic, since there are many. Their conclusions have profound implications for many linguists as well as for philosophers."--Jacket
Deflationism and paradox by J. C Beall( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deflationist accounts of truth are widely held in contemporary philosophy: they seek to show that truth is a dispensable concept with no metaphysical depth. However, logical paradoxes present problems for deflationists, which their work has struggled to overcome. In this volume of fourteen original essays, a distinguished team of contributors explore the extent to which, if at all, deflationism can accommodate paradox. The volume will be of interest to philosophers of logic, philosophers of language, and anyone working on truth."--Jacket
Possibilities and paradox : an introduction to modal and many-valued logic by J. C Beall( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Possibilities and Paradox is an accessible introduction to modal and many-valued logic. The book gives a clear and approachable structure to the basic formal frameworks, with reference to a range of philosophical issues."
Liars and heaps : new essays on paradox( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Semantic and soritical paradoxes challenge entrenched, fundamental principles about language - principles about truth, denotation, quantification, and, among others, 'tolerance'. Study of the paradoxes helps us determine which logical principles are correct. So it is that they serve not only as a topic of philosophical inquiry but also as a constraint on such inquiry: they often dictate the semantic and logical limits of discourse in general. Sixteen specially written essays by leading figures in the field offer new thoughts and arguments about the paradoxes
Revenge of the liar : new essays on the paradox by J. C Beall( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Liar paradox raises foundational questions about logic, language, and truth (and semantic notions in general). A simple Liar sentence like 'This sentence is false' appears to be both true and false if it is either true or false, For if the sentence is true, then what it says is the case; but what it says is that it is false, hence it must be false. On the other hand, if the statement is false, then it is true, since it says (only) that it is false." "How, then, should we classify Liar sentences? Are they true or false? A natural suggestion would be that Liars are neither true not false: that is, they fall into a category beyond truth and falsity. This solution might resolve the initial problem, but it beckons the Liar's revenge. A sentence that says of itself only that it is false or beyond truth and falsity will, in effect, bring back the initial problem. The Liar's revenge is a witness to the hydra-like nature of Liars: in dealing with one Liar you often bring about another."--Jacket
Spandrels of truth by J. C Beall( Book )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.C. Beall presents a new theory of 'transparent' truth. A prominent philosophical view of truth is as an entirely see-through device introduced for only practical (expressive) reasons. Beall's modest dialetheic theory shows how the notorious paradoxes associated with transparency can be dealt with
