Preface

Preface The annually published journal Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy is meant to provide an international forum for articles in which classical philo- sophical texts are interpreted by drawing on the resources of modern formal logic. The second volume is the first to have a thematic focus. In the future we plan that approximately every other volume be thematically oriented. This volume, focusing on ancient philosophy, offers not only articles on Parmenides, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle up to late ancient philosophy, but also a broad discussion of Diodorus Cronus’ Master Argument. The papers by Weidemann, Gaskin, M. J. White and Denyer as well as Hafemann and Inciarte deal with the problem of adequately analysing statements relating to contingent future events, so that this volume is also characterised by an extensive discussion concerning the philosophy of time. New in this volume is also the introduction of a section with book reviews edited by Wolfgang Malzkorn. We are indebted to the members of the editorial board, some of who have assisted in reviewing several submissions. Ulrich Nortmann’s constructive sug- gestions were especially helpful in preparing the profile of the second volume. We are also very thankful to Rimas Cuplinskas and Sven Walter for their assis- tance as well as to our publishers, the mentis Verlag , who are now running the philosophical editions formerly belonging to the Schöningh-Verlag,for their constant friendly support.

Abstract

The annually published journal Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy is meant to provide an international forum for articles in which classical philo- sophical texts are interpreted by drawing on the resources of modern formal logic. The second volume is the first to have a thematic focus. In the future we plan that approximately every other volume be thematically oriented. This volume, focusing on ancient philosophy, offers not only articles on Parmenides, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle up to late ancient philosophy, but also a broad discussion of Diodorus Cronus’ Master Argument. The papers by Weidemann, Gaskin, M. J. White and Denyer as well as Hafemann and Inciarte deal with the problem of adequately analysing statements relating to contingent future events, so that this volume is also characterised by an extensive discussion concerning the philosophy of time. New in this volume is also the introduction of a section with book reviews edited by Wolfgang Malzkorn. We are indebted to the members of the editorial board, some of who have assisted in reviewing several submissions. Ulrich Nortmann’s constructive sug- gestions were especially helpful in preparing the profile of the second volume. We are also very thankful to Rimas Cuplinskas and Sven Walter for their assis- tance as well as to our publishers, the mentis Verlag , who are now running the philosophical editions formerly belonging to the Schöningh-Verlag,for their constant friendly support.
