About this book

The Handbook aims to provide a comprehensive review of research on logical thought in China by both Chinese and non-Chinese scholars. It highlights and summarizes important areas of controversy and general agreement, while giving prime importance to clarity of exposition. The title covers Chinese thought on reasoning and argumentation, the influence of non-Chinese logic on Chinese thought, and the systematic aspects of reasoning other than the classical canon of ‘logic’ texts. By bringing together different perspectives, it seeks to provide a multifaceted and comprehensive presentation on this rich and sometimes perplexing phenomenon.

About the authors

Fenrong Liu is a full Professor of Logic, Deputy Director at the Department of Philosophy at Tsinghua University. She received her first Ph.D in 2001 at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and her second Ph.D in 2008 at the University of Amsterdam. Fenrong works mainly in the field of logics for rational agency. Her research work includes the formal structured models of preference dynamics and modeling different types of agent in terms of logic. Her recent interest lies in understanding the features of information flow and decision making in social setting, and establishing more realistic models. In addition, she maintains active interests in Chinese Ancient Logic. Fenrong is an Editor-in-Chief of the new book series of Studia Logica Library: Logic in Asia, an editor of Australasian Journal of Logic, an associate editor of Studia Logica and Studies in Logic, and an editorial board member of Synthese and Topoi. Jeremy Seligman is a philosopher and logician, applying ideas from mathematics and logic to philosophical problems, with current focus on social reasoning. He also has an active interest in the history of logical thought in China. Dr. Seligman’s research involves the application of ideas from logic and mathematics to philosophically interesting topics. His early career focus was on Situation Theory - the attempt to provide a mathematically precise account of contextual information and reasoning. From that Dr. Seligman progressed to Hybrid Logic, which has since become a mainstream tool for work in applied philosophical logic. More recently, he has been working on the models of reasoning in social situations in a project with the general title “Logic in the Community”, and on applications of modern techniques to modeling the theories of reasoning in ancient China. Jincheng Zhai is with the Department of Philosophy of Nankai University in Tianjin, China.
