The Games of Logic
A Philosophical Perspective

Call for Papers

For more than two decades now, each year has seen a growing number of 
important results in the emerging field centered on the interactions 
between game theory and logic. We feel that it is time for the 
philosopher to assess in which ways those results bear on the 
fundamental questions of the philosophy of logic. In particular, what 
insight have we gained on such central notions as truth, validity, 
proof, proposition, form and formality, logicality, etc.
We would thus like to open a series of books that we conceive as a 
gathering place where philosophical ideas concerning those topics can be 
expressed, scrutinized and confronted. The series will be published by 
College Publications (http://www.collegepublications.co.uk/ 
<http://www.collegepublications.co.uk/>) as a new subseries of the 
'Philosophy' series.

We therefore invite submissions related to all aspects of the 
philosophical consequences of the interactions between games and logic. 
More specific topics include (but are not limited to): game-theoretical 
semantics, dialogical logic, ludics, Ehrenfeucht-Fraïssé games, 
game-theoretical notions of logical form, game-theoretical notion of 
proposition, logical games between semantics and proof theory, games and 
modal logic.

The editors, S. Rahman and L. Keiff
