A universally abnormality-adaptive logic 2.


D. Batens


The present paper presents a logic that allows for the abnormal behaviour o f any logical constant and for the ambiguous behaviour o f any non-logical constant, but nevertheless offers an interpretation o f the premises that is as normal as possible.
