Zoltán Vecsey:
A new argument against logical pluralism

This paper discusses J.C. Beall and Greg Restall’s pluralistic approach to logic. After a brief introduction, I outline the main arguments for the case of logical pluralism. Then I present a particular line of criticism, based on the cutting observations of Stephen Read and Graham Priest. Finally, in the last part of the paper, I develop a new argument, which is directed against the fundamental thesis of logical pluralism. Since the argument attempts to show that the fundamental thesis incorporates a self-defeating feature, it will be called the Instability Argument.
