Newton da Costa on Non-Reflexive Logics and its Applications to the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics

Abstract
Newton da Costa has studied the foundations of quantum mechanics, and of quantum theories in general, since a long time ago. Motivated by Erwin Schrödinger, who sustained that the notion of identity would not be appliable to quantum objects, he developed a first-order system… read more

Paraconsistent Probability and Uncertainty: How a Computer Should Reason about Evidence

Abstract
Evidence, probability, and logic are intrinsically related, and reasoning with evidence is a topic with higher interest not only for philosophy, but also for machine learning and AI. Evidence may be contradictory as well as incomplete, thus demanding a paracomplete and paraconsistent logic… read more
