FIRST “ALFREDO DEAÑO” SEMINAR ON ORDINARY REASONING
The Foundation for the Advancement of Soft Computing (by means of the European Centre for Soft computing (ECSC)) and Cajastur Savings Bank, organize the First “Alfredo Deano” Seminar on Ordinary Reasoning, to be held in the Cultural Center “Muralla Romana” of Gijon (Spain) on April 29th, 2011.
The seminar, coordinated by Prof. Alejandro Sobrino, is open to experts and non experts in the field of logic and it aims to become an invitation to know some modern attempts to extract the underlying logic inherente to various aspects of ordinary reasoning, as the imprecision, the time or the use of cases in the argumentation. It also intends to be a discussion forum in which attendees can discuss the shortcomings, achievements and challenges ahead in the fascinating world of how to accomplish a computer that is able to simulate the characteristics of ordinary reasoning.
The final goal is to pay tribute to Alfredo Deaño, who became the first Spanish logician that disseminated the logic of ordinary language in his famous book: "Introduction to Formal Logic" (1974).
