The Construction of Logical Space
Oxford University Press, 2013
How do we shape our conception of logical space?
Our conception of logical space is the set of distinctions we use to navigate the world. In The Construction of Logical Space Agustín Rayo defends the idea that one's conception of logical space is shaped by one's acceptance or rejection of 'just is'-statements: statements like "to be composed of water just is to be composed of H2O," or "for the number of the dinosaurs to be zero just is for there to be no dinosaurs."
Agustín Rayo is a Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy
