Meeting Description:

LOGIC, GAMES AND PHILOSOPHY: FOUNDATIONAL PERSPECTIVES 

Prague International Colloquium 

28 September - 1 October 2004, Prague, Czech Republic

Games, like logics, are tools for investigating the world, language,
and their relationship. Semantic, dialogic, evolutionary,
interrogative, argumentative, and pragmatic methods have been included
into the toolkit. Following the recent increase in investment on
games and game-theoretic methods in logic, language, computation and
communication, we still need a better understanding of the
possibilities of forming converging methodologies underlying these
diverse contemporary currents. The purpose of the Prague Conference on
Logic, Games and Philosophy: Foundational Perspectives is to explore
the interfaces between logic and games with the eye on philosophical,
methodological and foundational issues.
