"Contradiction, consistency and the paraconsistent perspective in the Western thought: from Heraclitus of  Ephesus to Newton da Costa"

In this presentation I will outline a historical analysis on how a paraconsistent perspective was properly constituted in the Western thought and how principles, rules and logical systems begin to express distinct concepts of paraconsistency. By analyzing the historical precedents of paraconsistent logic before the 20th century, we can identify some unanswered questions: What ideas were proposed and debated with regard to consistency in that period of the history of formal logic? Did such ideas influence later logical theories? Was there knowledge of logical rules and principles which allowed, in some contexts, for  inconsistency to be dealt without trivialization? If such principles were known, how were these proto- principles stated, and in what way can they be related to the logical-paraconsistent results and rules known  today?

Can there be a materialist explanation for conscious experience? I present a view—ground functionalism—which combines metaphysical grounding and functionalist perspectives on the mind, in claiming that conscious experience is grounded in functional role. According to ground functionalism, a subject experiences pain because she is in a state that plays the pain-role, and in general a subject has a given experience because she is in some state that plays the corresponding functional role. I first discuss what it would take to provide a materialist explanation for conscious experience, and then argue that ground functionalism delivers.

Three levels of modality in scientific representation

Abstract: Suarez distinguishes two aspects of scientific representation: (i) the conditions by which a model counts as a representation of its target, even if it misrepresents its target (which I shall call relevance conditions), and (ii) the conditions by which this representation is good or accurate (accuracy conditions). He also claims that no necessary and sufficient conditions can be specified in a fully generic way, beyond the minimal idea that a relevant model allows its users to draw inferences on the target, and that when the model is accurate, these inferences are sound. This could be interpreted as the idea that relevance and accuracy conditions depend on the context of use, including the aim of users. In spite of Suarez' pessimism regarding the possibility of a substantial account of scientific representation, I attempt to develop this idea and provide a systematic account of the relationship between contexts of use, relevance conditions and accuracy conditions. The main idea is the following: scientific theories typically provide a hierarchy of levels of abstraction. A context of use specifies one level at which inferences operate. In any context of use, getting this level right counts as accuracy, and getting right the levels above in the hierarchy counts as relevance. I argue that this corresponds exactly to epistemic and conceptual modalities, respectively. Furthermore, the levels below in the hierarchy are typically represented within the model as natural possibilities, which constitute a third modality. Thus this account also informs us about what distinguishes various kinds of modalities. One counter-intuitive consequence is that the distinction between these kinds (whether some possibilities are epistemic, natural or conceptual) would be pragmatic rather than absolute, but I defend the plausibility of this thesis on the basis of examples of use.
