This quantity is the 1st ever assortment dedicated to the sphere of proof-theoretic semantics. Contributions deal with issues together with the systematics of creation and removal ideas and proofs of normalization, the categorial characterization of deductions, the relation among Heyting's and Gentzen's methods to that means, knowability paradoxes, proof-theoretic foundations of set conception, Dummett's justification of logical legislation, Kreisel's conception of structures, paradoxical reasoning, and the defence of version theory.

Proof-theoretic semantics explains the that means of linguistic expressions typically and of logical constants specifically by way of the inspiration of evidence. This quantity emerges from shows on the moment foreign convention on Proof-Theoretic Semantics in Tübingen in 2013, the place contributing authors have been requested to supply a self-contained description and research of an important learn query during this region. The contributions are consultant of the sector and will be of curiosity to logicians, philosophers, and mathematicians alike.
