You can Google the author's name and find papers in English he published.
This is informative, if you like nonsense.

Re: Why still no science of logic?

Not science, and not even bad logic. Somewhat like you, only much less incoherent. EB Let me give you a quick lesson on (in)coherence... an accurate formal model of logic seems therefore beyond question. That expression right there. Is incoherent. Fallacious post, as usual. Here is what I actually ...

Re: Why still no science of logic?

Why no science of logic? By logic, I mean deductive logic. By science of logic, I mean a scientific investigation of logic as objective performance and manifest capability of human beings, investigation that would try to develop a formal model of logic which would be accurate and operational. I can...

Re: Why still no science of logic?

I am wondering, can sense be made of this at all? A science of logic: Science is known for its rigor, its uncompromising standards that put forth idea only if grounded in observation and the facts of the world. But logic has no factual nature, if you define facts as affairs in the world. Logic is s...

Re: Beyond the Law of Noncontradiction

Dear logicians! I think I’ve come up with something beyond the Law of Noncontradiction. Unfortunately, I’m not a trained philosopher, let alone a logician. I’m not sure whether I’m right or wrong, or rather, how wrong I am and how I am wrong. Anyway, here is what I’ve been thinking about. In Plato’...

Re: Beyond the Law of Noncontradiction

"Contradiction" literally comes from the etymological meaning, "with a third option asserted". ['con' with , 'tra' three , 'diction' stated thing ] That something can be understood to be 'true and false' is this third of discrete possibilities. The prefix Contra- comes from the Latin contrā, meanin...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

What if I say a PC becomes conscious the moment you connect it with a monitor and it displays some content. Then I can say, look, there it is its qualia right there on the display, that's what it thinks, that's what it feels. It does not feel like we do in terms of pain and desire, but in terms of ...

Re: Your brain tricks you into believing... What?!

One example, and perhaps the most convincing example, of psychologists, including neuroscientists, actually concluding from their research that a standard mental event is best understood as, literally, an illusion that people have is the frequent scientific conclusion that our belief that we have f...

Re: Your brain tricks you into believing... What?!

The argument is that you don't freely choose your 'wants'. They are completely the result of "purely physical (as opposed to metaphysical) causes and prior states of the world". You have no choice in what you want. Therefore thinking that you are doing what you want is part of the illusion. But thi...

Re: The Nature of Consciousness

Perhaps I misunderstood. I thought, in your sentence, "I don't need to be given an explanation of reality because by definition there is none ," your phrase, "because by definition there is none," modified the noun, "reality," immediately preceding it. You apparently meant for it to modify the enti...

Counter-intuitive formulas?

Are there propositional logic formulas, outside self-referential ones, whose validity or invalidity is often perceived as counter-intuitive?
