dc.description.abstractHow many correct logics are there? For much of logic’s history it was widely assumed that there was exactly one correct logic, a position known as logical monism. However, the monist’s hegemony has recently become increasingly precarious as she has simultaneously come under attack from two sides. On one side she faces logical pluralists who contend that there is more than one correct logic, and on the other she faces logical nihilists who contend that there are no correct logics. This thesis aims to defend monism against the twin threats of pluralism and nihilism.en_US
