LOGIC AND RELIGION ON THE WORLD LOGIC DAY

The World Logic Day

 

Responding to a proposal by the Ambassador of Brazil at UNESCO, Maria Edileuza Fontenele Reis (who in her turn responded to a proposal originally made by Jean-Yves Beziau), on 26 November 2019, the 40th General Conference of UNESCO proclaimed 14 January to be World Logic Day, a global day of supporting the development of logic through teaching and research, as well as to public dissemination of the discipline. The date chosen to celebrate World Logic Day, 14 January, corresponds to the date of death of Kurt Gödel and the date of birth of Alfred Tarski, two of the most prominent logicians of the twentieth century. 

Logic and Religion

The Logic and Religion Project joins the dozens of worldwide Initiatives in celebration of the World Logic Day and promotes, on January 14, 2021, the online and free event Logic and Religion on the World Logic Day 2021. Talks start at 1 pm (GMT) and will be streamed via the Logic and Religion Youtube channel. They will be divided into three sessions (see list of speakers and schedule below). The Youtube links of the sessions follow:
