              Logical pluralism is the view that different logics are equally appropriate, or equally correct. Logical relativism is a pluralism according to which validity and logical consequence are relative to something. Stewart Shapiro explores various such views. He argues that the questi...on of meaning shift is itself context-sensitive and interest-relative.

              Stewart Shapiro develops an account of the meaning, function, and logic of vague terms in an idealized version of a natural language. The key feature is that extensions of vague terms vary in the course of conversations and, in some cases, a speaker can go either way without sinn...ing against the meaning of the words or the non-linguistic facts.

In order to develop the argument fully, the author presents a detailed development of higher-order logic, including a comprehensive discussion of it...s semantics.

              Hellman and Shapiro explore the development of the idea of the continuous, from the Aristotelian view that a true continuum cannot be composed of points to the now standard, entirely punctiform frameworks for analysis and geometry. They then investigate the underlying metaphysica...l issues concerning the nature of space or space-time.
