Facing the future : agents and choices in our indeterminist world by Nuel D Belnap( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is an important new theory of human action, a theory that assumes actions are founded on choices made by agents who face an open future. It is a theory that makes indeterminism not only intelligible but illuminating. Tools from philosophy of language and philosophical logic help generate a full-scale account of agents "seeing to it that." The authors then proceed to clarify a variety of action-related topics such as determinism vs. indeterminism, imperatives, promises, strategies, joint agency, "could have done otherwise," deontic constructions, and assertions about a not yet settled future
Truth or consequences : essays in honor of Nuel Belnap by J. Michael Dunn( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection are written by students, colleagues, and friends of Nuel Belnap to honor him on his sixtieth birthday. Our original plan was to include pieces from fonner students only, but we have deviated from this ever so slightly for a variety of personal and practical reasons. Belnap's research accomplishments are numerous and well known: He has founded (together with Alan Ross Anderson) a whole branch of logic known as "relevance logic." He has made contributions of fundamental importance to the logic of questions. His work in modal logic, fonnal pragmatics, and the theory of truth has been highly influential. And the list goes on. Belnap's accomplishments as a teacher are also distinguished and well known but, by virtue of the essential privacy of the teaching relationship, not so well understood. We would like to reflect a little on what makes him such an outstanding teacher

An analysis of questions; preliminary report by Nuel D Belnap( Book )

6 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes the logical syntax of questions and answers, and sets forth the principle that a question is wholly determined by specifying the alternatives it presents and the request it makes. Shows how this analysis leads to a cross-classification of questions into several interesting varieties. Lists and discusses three varieties of questions. Describes a formal language (L) for which a logic of questions is devised by the addition of some machinery for asking questions in an orderly and fruitful way. Discusses the criteria which the formalization of questions and answers should satisfy. Outlines considerations of the notion of 'truth' and 'falsity' as these are related to questions. Sets forth semantical concepts in the appraisal of questions and answers, and presents a set theoretical analysis of questions and answers. (Author)

Logical, thought and action( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second volume in the series Logic, Epistemology, and the Unity of Science brings a pragmatic perspective to the discussion of the unity of science. Contemporary philosophy and cognitive science increasingly acknowledge the systematic interrelation of language, thought and action. The principal function of language is to enable speakers to communicate their intentions to others, to respond flexibly in a social context and to act cooperatively in the world. This book will contribute to our understanding of this dynamic process by clearly presenting and discussing the most important hypotheses, issues and theories in philosophical and logical study of language, thought and action. Among the fundamental issues discussed are the rationality and freedom of agents, theoretical and practical reasoning, individual and collective attitudes and actions, the nature of cooperation and communication, the construction and conditions of adequacy of scientific theories, propositional contents and their truth conditions, illocutionary force, time, aspect and presupposition in meaning, speech acts within dialogue, the dialogical approach to logic and the structure of dialogues and other language games, as well as formal methods needed in logic or artificial intelligence to account for choice, paradoxes, uncertainty and imprecision. This volume contains major contributions by leading logicians, analytic philosophers, linguists and computer scientists. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers from philosophy, logic, linguistics, cognitive science and artificial intelligence.
