Logic of Paradise

LogParadise 2022


The paradise is a famous notion in many religions. It may have different names and may come with different related notions. As a substantive, it is considered as a location, but there is also the qualitative “paradisiacal”, that applies to many situations and can be related to different states of mind. The aim of this workshop is to study the logical aspects of paradise and paradisiacality.
We invite submissions of contributed papers on topics related to these questions, including but not restricted to:
- Logical relations of paradise with similar, different or opposite locations, such as hell, purgatory, limbo, earth, heaven.
- Aspects of the paradisiac mind (happiness, delightedness) and its logical relations with other psychic dispositions such as hope, fear, anger, confidence, joy.
- Ways to reach the paradise using logic to avoid illusions, misleading gurus, wrong behaviors and to develop good understanding, balancing emotions with the intellect.
- The logical structure of the paradise: kinds of things and beings which are inside paradise (stones, rivers, seas, plants, trees, animals, humans, divine beings) and the relations between them.
Abstracts must have a maximum of 600 words and be written in English according to our template; they must be submitted via Easychair (note that prior registration with EasyChair is required). In the submission, one of the keywords must be "Logic of Paradise". At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the congress.
Accepted abstracts will be published in the congress proceedings, which will be available during the congress. After the meeting authors will be invited to submit a complete version of their works, which will be peer-reviewed and published in a special issue of Logica Universalis (Birkhäuser / Springer), a journal of international recognition, included in the Science Citation Index (SCIE) with a high impact factor.
