|Sagi, Gil (2014): Formality in Logic: From Logical Terms to Semantic Constraints. In: Logique et Analyse|
In the paper I discuss a prevailing view by which logicalterms determine forms of sentences and arguments and there-fore the logical validity of arguments. This view is common tothose who hold that there is a principled distinction betweenlogical and nonlogical terms and those holding relativistic ac-counts. I adopt the Tarskian tradition by which logical validityis determined by form, but reject the centrality of logical terms.I propose an alternative framework for logic where logicalterms no longer play a distinctive role. This account employs anew notion of semantic constraints. The paper includes some preliminary deﬁnitions and results in the new framework.
