Pietz, Andreas (12. September 2011): Not Quite Intuitionism. XXII. Deutscher Kongress für Philosophie, 11. - 15. September 2011, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.


This is an investigation of M. Dummett's claim that a theory of meaning based on verification conditions should lead to the abandonment of classical logic in favor of intuitionistic logic. I especially concentrate on his suggestion that, in order to give the meaning of negations and conditionals, we should also take on board falsification conditions. Taken seriously, however, this route takes us not to intuitionistic logic, but rather to one of the Nelson logics.
