Science aims to reconsider the question of the unity of science in light of recent developments in logic At present, no single logical, semantical or methodological framework dominates the philosophy of science However, the editors of this series believe that formal techniques like, for example, independence friendly logic, dialogical logics, multimodal logics, game theoretic semantics and linear logics, have the potential to cast new light on basic issues in the discussion of the unity of science This series provides a venue where philosophers and logicians can apply speciﬁc technical insights to fundamental philosophical problems While the series is open to a wide variety of perspectives, including the study and analysis of argumentation and the critical discussion of the relationship between logic and the philosophy of science, the aim is to provide an integrated picture of the scientiﬁc enterprise in all its diversity More information about this series at

and Tati Sine qua non Campinas, February 29, 2016 Preface I protest against the use of inﬁnite magnitude as something completed, which in mathematics is never permissible Innity is merely a faỗon de parler, the real meaning being a limit which certain ratios approach indeﬁnitely near, while others are permitted to increase without restriction C.F Gauss, Brief an Schumacher (1831); Werke 8, 216 (1831) In a letter to the astronomer H.C Schumacher in 1831, Gauss was rebuking mathematicians for their use of the inﬁnite as a number, and even for their use of the symbol for the inﬁnite It would be difﬁcult to sustain that kind of ﬁnitism, regardless of any epistemological considerations: a good part of mathematics simply cannot survive with only the potential inﬁnite The reaction against the inﬁnite, as well as against complex or imaginary numbers, and against negative numbers before, are interesting examples of the difﬁculties faced, even by great minds, in accepting certain abstractions Aristotle in Chaps 4–8 of Book III of Physics argued against the actual inﬁnite, advocating for the potential inﬁnite His idea was that natural numbers could never be conceived as a whole Euclid in a certain sense never proved that there exist inﬁnitely many prime numbers What was actually stated in Proposition 20 of Book IX, carefully avoiding the term inﬁnite, was that “prime numbers are more than any previously thought (total) number of primes”, which agrees with his tradition It was only in the nineteenth century that G Cantor dispelled all those accepted views by showing that an inﬁnite set can be treated as a totality, as a full-fledged mathematical object with honorable properties, no less than the natural numbers Imaginary numbers were introduced to mathematics in the sixteenth century (through Girolamo Cardano, though others had already used them in different guises) These numbers caused an embarrassment among mathematicians for centuries, since they faced astonishing difﬁculties in accepting an extension of the concept of number, especially in light of the problem of computing the square root of −1 Only after the fundamental works of L Euler and Gauss did the complex vii viii Preface numbers rid themselves of the label “imaginary” given them by Descartes in 1637, and even then not without difﬁculty The mathematics of the inﬁnite and of complex numbers, and all they represent in contemporary science, are triumphant cases of ampliﬁed concepts, but are not the only ones A notable case of expansion of concepts, with deep implications for the development of contemporary logic, can be traced back to Frege and his famous article of 1891, Funktion und Begriff (see [1]) In this seminal paper, Frege recalls how the meaning of the term ‘function’ has changed in the history of mathematics, and how the mathematical operations used to deﬁne functions have been extended by, as he says, ‘the progress of science’: basically, through passages (or transitions) to the limit, as in the process of deﬁning a new function y0 ¼ f xị from a function y ẳ f xị (provided that the limits involved in the calculus exist), and through accepting complex numbers in domains and images of functions Starting from this point, Frege goes further into adding expressions that now we call predicates, such as ‘=’, ‘’ Leaving aside his philosophical motivations for seeing arithmetic as a “further development of logic”, what Frege started was a real revolution, that made possible the development of quantiﬁers and an unprecedented uniﬁcation of propositional and predicate logic into a far more powerful system than any that preceded it Not only could the truth-values, True and False, be taken as outputs of a function, but any object whatsoever could be similarly treated To rephrase an example from Frege himself, if we suppose ‘the capital of x’ expresses a function, of which ‘the German Empire’ is the argument, Berlin is returned as the value of the function In this way, Frege’s system could represent non-mathematical thoughts and predications, and founded the basis of the modern predicate calculus Frege’s idea of deﬁning an independent notion of ‘concept’ as a function which maps every argument to one of the truth-values True or False was instrumental in the development of a strict understanding of the notions of ‘proof’, ‘derivation’, and ‘semantics’ as parts of the same logic mechanism Regarding ‘concept’ as a wide and independent notion based on an ampliﬁcation of the idea of function was an essential step for Frege’s fundamental break between the older Aristotelian tradition and the contemporary approach to logic Paraconsistency is the study of logical systems in which the presence of a contradiction does not imply triviality, that is, logical systems with a non-explosive negation : such that a pair of propositions A and :A does not (always) trivialize the system However, it is not only the syntactic and semantic properties of these systems that are worth studying Some questions arise that are perennial philosophical problems The question of the nature of the contradictions allowed by paraconsistent logics has been a focus of debate on the philosophical signiﬁcance of paraconsistency Although this book is primarily focused on the logico-mathematical development of paraconsistency, the technical results emphasized here aim to help, and hopefully to guide, the study of some of those philosophical problems Preface ix Paraconsistent logics are able to deal with contradictory scenarios, avoiding triviality by means of the rejection of the Principle of Explosion, in the sense that these theories not trivialize in the presence of (at least some) contradictory sentences Different from traditional logic, in paraconsistent logics triviality is not necessarily connected to contradictoriness; in intuitive terms (a more formal account in given in Sect 1.2) the situation could be described by the pictorial equation: contradictoriness þ consistency ¼ triviality The Logics of Formal Inconsistency, from now on LFIs, introduced in [2] and additionally developed in [3], are a family of paraconsistent logics that encompasses a great number of paraconsistent systems, including the majority of systems developed within the Brazilian tradition An important characteristic of LFIs is that they are endowed with linguistic resources that permit to express the notion of consistency of sentences inside the object language by using a sentential unary connective referred to as ‘circle’: A meaning A is consistent Explosion in the presence of contradictions does not hold in LFIs, as much as in any other paraconsistent logic But LFIs are so designed that some contradictions will cause deductive explosion: consistent contradictions lead to triviality–intuitively, one can understand the notion of a ‘consistent contradiction’ as a contradiction involving well-established facts, or involving propositions that have conclusive favorable evidence In this sense, LFIs are logics that permit one to separate the sentences for which explosion hold, from those for which explosion does not hold It is not difﬁcult to see that, in this way, reasoning under LFIs extend and expand the reasoning under classical logic: although LFIs are technically subsystems of classical logic, classical logic can be identiﬁed with that portion of LFIs that deals with ‘consistent contradictions’ Therefore LFIs subsume classical reasoning This point will be explained in more detail in Sect 1.2 We may say that a ﬁrst step in paraconsistency is the distinction between triviality and contradictoriness But there is a second step, namely, the distinction between consistency and non-contradictoriness In LFIs the consistency connective is not only primitive, but it is also not necessarily equivalent to non-contradiction This is the most distinguishing feature of the logics of formal inconsistency Once we break up the equivalence between A and :ðA ^ :AÞ, some quite interesting developments become available Indeed, A may express notions of consistency independent from freedom from contradiction The most important conceptual distinction between LFIs and traditional logic is that LFIs start from the principle that assertions about the world can be divided into two categories: consistent sentences and non-consistent sentences Consistent propositions are subjected to classical logic, and consequently a theory T that contains a pair of contradictory sentences A; :A explodes only if A is taken to be a consistent sentence, linguistically marked as A (or :A) This is the only distinction between LFIs and classical logic, albeit with far-reaching consequences: x Preface classical logic in this form is augmented, in such a way that in most cases an LFI encodes classical logic The concept of LFIs generalizes and extends the famous hierarchy of C-systems introduced in [4] and popularized by hundreds of papers At the same time, LFIs expand the classical logical stance, and consequently the majority of the traditional concepts and methods of classical logic, propositional or quantiﬁed (and even higher-order), can be adapted, with careful attention to detail Since, as much as intuitionistic logic, LFIs are more of an epistemic nature, rather than of an ontological, there is no point in advocating the replacement of classical logic with paraconsistent logic Because LFIs extend the classical stance, the analogy with transﬁnite ordinal numbers and with complex numbers is compelling: in such cases, there is no rejection of what has come before, but a reﬁnement of it It is not infrequent that an argument as of the skeptics, such as that given by Sextus Empiricus1 against the sophists, is trumpeted against the need of paraconsistent logic, in science or reasoning in general: [If an argument] leads to what is inadmissible, it is not we that ought to yield hasty assent to the absurdity because of its plausibility, but it is they that ought to abstain from the argument which constrains them to assent to absurdities, if they really choose to seek truth, as they profess, rather than drivel like children Thus, suppose there were a road leading up to a chasm, we not push ourselves into the chasm just because there is a road leading to it but we avoid the road because of the chasm; so, in the same way, if there should be an argument which leads us to a confessedly absurd conclusion, we shall not assent to the absurdity just because of the argument but avoid the argument because of the absurdity So whenever such an argument is propounded to us we shall suspend judgement regarding each premiss, and when ﬁnally the whole argument is propounded we shall draw what conclusions we approve This argument, however, if it is not against the use of any logic, is indeed favorable to the kind of paraconsistency represented by LFIs The notion of consistency—symbolized as when applied to propositions—actually increases our wisdom: it does not stop one to jump into the chasm, but rather marks out the dangerous roads and, precisely, helps avoid such roads because of the chasm! The idea that consistency can be taken as a primitive, independent notion, and be axiomatized for the good proﬁt of logic is a new idea, which permits one to separate not only the notion of contradiction from the notion of deductive triviality, which is true of all paraconsistent logics, but also the notion of inconsistency from the notion of contradiction—as well as consistency from non-contradiction This reﬁned idea of consistency has great potential, as we shall see in detail in this book, as unanticipated as the possibilities that imaginary numbers, completed inﬁnite, and Frege’s idealization of a ‘concept’ as a function mapping arguments to one of the truth-values represented in mathematics, logic and philosophy The rest of the book will speak for itself Sextus Empiricus, Outlines of Pyrrhonism, LCL 273: 318–319 http://www.loebclassics.com/ view/sextus_empiricus-outlines_pyrrhonism/1933/pb_LCL273.3.xml 9.3 Quasi-truth and the Reconciliation of Science and Rationality 383 true If this view seems appropriate for an anti-realist view of natural sciences, it is debatable whether it is also good for mathematics, logic, statistics, and other formal sciences, such as theoretical computer science, information theory, game theory, theoretical linguistics and cognitive science Nothing, however, in principle impeaches a partial-truth account of such disciplines One of the main problems concerning scientific rationality is to try to understand how science develops, and how theories are selected and substituted in the long term, as put in [32]: How to entertain with the best rational attitude the periods when contradictions and apparently irreconcilable opposition between theories coexist? This problem involves two main interconnected issues according to [32]: (a) How should we rationally understand theory change in science? In particular, how should we accommodate, in rational terms, the apparent lack of a cumulative development in scientific development? What is at stake here are the criteria of theory selection, and the difficulties of rationally accommodating scientific development given the presence of radical theory changes in science This immediately raises the second issue: (b) How should we make sense of episodes that apparently challenge the rationality of scientific theorizing? For example, how should we understand the various situations in which scientists, or even mathematicians, entertain inconsistent theories? Are these simply cases of scientific irrationality? Noting the blatant diversity of cases in which dramatic theoretical changes are involved, leaving scientists and mathematicians facing the trouble of (even if temporarily) entertaining contradictory theories, a model of scientific rationality is outlined in [32] The intention is to accommodate these two issues, making explicit the role of such contradictory theories and yielding ‘an account of scientific rationality that is able to make better sense of scientific and mathematical activity’ Now, if scientific theories can rationally be taken to be quasi-true, the underlying logic is necessarily paraconsistent, on pain of trivialism, a disaster to be avoided at all costs A paraconsistent logic—in fact, a first-order three-valued LFI, called LPT1– providing support for quasi-truth, was proposed in [33], and proven to be sound and complete with respect to a certain semantics of triples A revised version of this proposal was given in Sect 7.9 of Chap The strategy in [33] avoids constructing total structures, with a minimal detour from the Tarskian notion of satisfaction Then it is proved that LPT1 coincides (up to language) with LFI1∗, the quantified version of LFI1 proposed by Carnielli et al in [34], and also with the quantified version of J3 studied several decades ago by I.M.L D’Ottaviano (see [35–38]) After this, LPT1 is compared with the logic LP, introduced by G Priest in [39] from F Asenjo’s proposal in [40], as a formal framework for studying antinomies The ‘logic of paradox’ LP, studied in more detail in Sect 4.4.5, is one of the main 3-valued paraconsistent logics introduced in the literature, and has a certain kinship with Łukasiewicz and Kleene’s 3-valued logics It was proved in [33] that LPQ, the first-order version of LP, is a fragment of LPT1, and so the latter is a conservative extension of the former The three-valued propositional logic underlying LPT1, 384 Paraconsistency and Philosophy of Science: Foundations … called MPT, was described in Sect 4.4.7 of Chap 4, while J3 and LP were briefly described in Sects 4.4.3 and 4.4.5 of that chapter, respectively The notion of quasi-truth, or partial truth, is therefore, closely connected to the paraconsistent LFI paradigm and constitutes a non-dogmatic overture to the dynamics of theory change in science, tolerant to the flounderings of scientific practice In [41] and [42] this question is studied under the perspective of the AGM theory of Belief Change based on LFIs (a good general reference for Belief Change is S Hansson’s book [43]) Paraconsistent Belief Revision systems apply their tools to elicit the very notion of rationality within a paraconsistent setting It is possible to explain, in particular, the role the consistency operator, as introduced by LFIs, has to play within a dynamic context By considering the existence of contradictions as a natural consequence of the dynamics of rational thinking, the strictures set by the Belief Revision systems’ operations within a paraconsistent approach are to be reinterpreted Thus, such approach could also be taken as a paradigm for scientific reasoning One innovation of [41, 42] is to understand consistency as an epistemic attitude, thus clearing the way for further inquiries about the epistemological features of paraconsistency, as the ones discussed in Chap and in the present chapter 9.4 An Evidence-Based Approach to Paraconsistency A pair of contradictory sentences may be understood as conveying conflicting information, or conflicting scenarios, or imposing a rational deadlock, and when one designs a paraconsistent logic aiming at giving rational tools to deal with them, the question of acceptance of a contradictory pair of sentences without falling into trivialism requires some philosophically palatable position; the notion of evidence seems particularly promising as a vantage point from which to understand paraconsistent logics Evidence may be understood, as it is usual in epistemology, as the relevant ingredient for justified belief [1] taking into account that justified belief is, in traditional terms, a necessary condition for knowledge From this point of view, the idea of preservation of evidence suggests itself as a topic to be further developed in LFIs, in an anlogous way to the idea of preservation of certain constructions, as in the well-known BHK interpretation of intuitionistic logic On the other hand, however, a paraconsistentist approach to evidence may also be characterized from a probabilistic point of view The aim of evidence theory is to give an account of reasoning under epistemic uncertainty, that may happen due to a lack of data and/or a defective understanding of the available data related to some scenarios It is distinguished from randomic uncertainty, that is due to the inherently aleatory character of some scenarios One of the key points of evidence theory is that in imprecise events, uncertainty about an event can be quantified by the maximum and minimum probabilities of that 9.4 An Evidence-Based Approach to Paraconsistency 385 event This directly connects evidence theory to probability theory, and therefore to Bayesian conditionalization In [44] the authors investigate a paraconsistent approach to theory of probability based on the logics of formal inconsistency The paper shows that LFIs naturally encode an extension of the notion of probability able to express the notion of probabilistic reasoning under contradictions by means of appropriate notions of conditional probability and paraconsistent updating, via a version of Bayes’ Theorem for conditionalization The paper argues that the dissimilarity between the notions of inconsistency and contradiction plays a central role in an extended notion of probability that supports contradictory reasoning Actually, evidence theory and Bayesian theory of subjective probability are simultaneously generalized by Dempster-Shafer theory, which concerns belief and plausibility Beliefs from different sources can be combined (by means of the so-called Dempster rule of combination) with various operators used to model specific situations of belief diffusion An analogous treatment can be given using paraconsistent probability Another approach to an evidence-based interpretation to paraconsistency, related (though not identical) to paraconsistent probability, is the game-theoretical view of paraconsistency, still to be developed in full A game-theoretical account (by means of dialogical logic) of paraconsistency is defended in [45] Dialogical logic makes it possible to accommodate the occurrence of contradictions in two (or more) persons’ reasoning, and contributes positively to debates concerning the ontological versus epistemological nature of contradictions Rahman and Carnielli’s paper has attracted some attention (see e.g [46]) as an relevant first step into reformulating paraconsistent logic in a dialogue format Dialogical logic is not the only approach to paraconsistency from the point of view of game theory For instance, in a paraconsistent game-theoretical scenario the truth of a sentence can be defined in terms of the lack of winning strategies for the Opponent, instead of in terms of existence of winning strategies of the Proponent; a similar view is defended in [47], but with different assumptions (namely, the existence of true contradictions or dialetheias) A related possibility is granted by the definition of so-called ‘team semantics’ in [48], although the idea of a society producing semantics had been introduced (years before) in [49] 9.5 Summing Up A logic has epistemic rather than ontological character when its subject matter refers not only to truth, but also to some other concept strictly related to reason This is the case of intuitionistic logic, which is concerned with truth attained in a specific way, by means of a constructive proof And we claim that this is also a way of understanding paraconsistency in general, and particularly the logics of formal inconsistency The latter, we may say, is concerned with truth, since classical logic can be recovered, but it is also concerned with a notion weaker than truth, and it is precisely this 386 Paraconsistency and Philosophy of Science: Foundations … notion weaker than truth that allows an intuitive and plausible understanding of the acceptance of contradictions in some contexts of reasoning Intuitionistic logic is a special sort of paracomplete logics, that is, logics in which there is a model M and a sentence A such that both A and its negation not hold in M Mathematicians deal with lack of information in the sense that there are many unsolved mathematical problems This is one of the reasons for the rejection of the law of excluded middle by intuitionists In empirical sciences, on the other hand, although obviously many things are not known, the researcher sometimes deals with conflicting information, and very often with contradictory information Thus (s)he sometimes may have to provisionally consider two contradictory claims, one of which in due time will be rejected Both intuitionistic and paraconsistent logics may be conceived as normative theories of logical consequence with an epistemic character Notwithstanding, both are also descriptive: the first, according to Brouwer and Heyting, is intended to represent how the mind works in constructing correct mathematical proofs, while the latter, we argue, represents how we draw inferences correctly when faced with contradictions In fact, it is not surprising that we find a kind of duality in the motivations for intuitionistic and paraconsistent logics Dual-intuitionistic logics have been shown in [50] to be essentially paraconsistent, and similar results in the other direction have been investigated Nevertheless, the dual of Heyting’s well-known intuitionistic logic gives rise to a new paraconsistent logic, that is, one that is not a familiar paraconsistent logic Another dualities between paraconsistency and intuitionism, even from a topological perspective, were also investigated in [51–53] These results, in any case, show an intrinsic relationship between both paradigms, but there is of course much to be investigated in this regard Conceptions of consistency as coherence among a collection of statements, or as continuity or persistence of a collection of statements in time, could also be studied from a paraconsistent point of view It is worth noting that the ideas presented here indicate that there is much more to be explored in Hegel than just the (maybe misleading) idea of true contradictions Although classical first-order logic is a powerful tool for modeling reasoning, the fact that it does not handle contradictions in a sensible way, due to the insistence on the Principle of Explosion, is an intrinsic drawback In essence, classical logic is too brutal to sense contradictions and to appraise their meaning In theoretical computer science, for example, facts and rules of knowledge bases, as well as integrity constraints, can produce contradictions when combined, even if they are sound when separate, and this is also the case for description logics For this reason, the development of paraconsistent tools has turned out to be an important issue in working with description logics and expandable knowledge bases, as well as with large or combined databases (see [34, 54]) The new approach to consistency delivered by the logics of formal inconsistency has also generated a good deal of interest in the field of inferential probability and confirmation theory Because of the well-known debate in the philosophical literature on the long-standing confusion about probability when confronted with confirmation (see e.g [55, 56]), notions such as coherence, credence, consistent or coherent 9.5 Summing Up 387 individual profiles versus group profiles, etc (see [57]), can be fruitfully approached from the point of view of the logics of formal inconsistency, although there is still a long way to go If this book helps in any way to clarify the strength of paraconsistent logics in the endeavour of reasoning it will have been successful References Kelly, Thomas 2014 Evidence In The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, ed Edward
