CFP: Celebrating the Work of Ross Brady


We are delighted to announce a special issue of the Australasian Journal of Logic (AJL) dedicated to celebrating the remarkable contributions of Ross Brady. Ross's work has made significant advancements in various areas of logic, both technically and philosophically. This special issue aims to honor his invaluable contributions and provide a platform for scholars to engage with his work.

We invite submissions on topics related to Ross Brady's research interests, including but not limited to:

Naive set theory, (see e.g. "The non-triviality of dialectical set theory" in Paraconsistent Logic: Essays on the Inconsistent or "The Simple Consistency of Naive Set Theory using Metavaluations";  Journal of Philosophical Logic, 2014).

Content semantics (see "A content semantics for quantified relevant logics I & II"; Studia Logica, 1988 and 1989).

Gentzenization results for nonclassical logics (see e.g. "Gentzenization and decidability of some contraction-less relevant logics"; Journal of Philosophical Logic, 1991 or "Gentzenizations of Relevant Logics with Distribution"; Journal of Symbolic Logic, 1996).

Normalized natural deduction systems for nonclassical logics (see e.g. "Normalized Natural Deduction Systems for Some Relevant Logics I: The Logic DW"; Journal of Symbolic Logic, 2006).

The consistency of arithmetic (see e.g. "The consistency of arithmetic, based on a logic of meaning containment"; Logique et Analyse, 2012 or "Arithmetic Formulated in a Logic of Meaning Containment"; Australasian Journal of Logic, 2021).

Relevant implication and arguments in favor of weak logics (see e.g. "Relevant implication and the case for a weaker logic"; Journal of Philosophical Logic, 1996 or Universal Logic; CSLI publications, 2006).

Critiques of Cantor's diagonal argument (see e.g. "What is Wrong with Cantor's Diagonal Argument?" (with Penny Rush); Logique et Analyse, 2008).

Distribution in logics of meaning containment and in quantum mechanics (see e.g. "Distribution in the logic of meaning containment and in quantum mechanics" (with Andrea Meinander) in Paraconsistency: Logic and Applications, 2013).

Use of definitions and logical representation in paradox derivation (see e.g. "The use of definitions and their logical representation in paradox derivation" Synthese, 2017).

In addition to the listed topics, we welcome submissions that explore related areas, recent research, and extensions of Ross Brady's work. Particularly, we encourage contributions focusing on the logic MC of meaning containment and its applications, as well as investigations into metavaluations and metacompleteness.

Submission Guidelines:

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guidelines of the Australasian Journal of Logic ( Submissions should be made through the AJL's online submission system (details available on the journal's website). All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure the quality and relevance of the contributions.

The deadline for paper submissions is February 28, 2024.
