Logic And Religion Association
LARA

The Logic and Religion Association (LARA) aims to advance research in the field of Logic and Religion. This is being achieved through the World Congress of Logic and Religion (WoColoR) and other scientific events, as well as through the publication of manuscripts. It was created in 2021 as a natural development of the Logic and Religion project.

The origins of the Logic and Religion project date back to 2014, when Ricardo Silvestre and Jean-Yves Beziau conceived the 1st World Congress of Logic and Religion (WoCoLoR), which took place in João Pessoa, Brazil, the following year. Approximately 150 logicians and theologians from around the world attended the event; it had distinguished scholars such as Richard Swinburne (Oxford) and Jean-Pierre Desclés (Paris) as plenary speakers. The 2nd WoCoLoR was then held in 2017 in Warsaw, Poland, hosted by Marcin Trepczyński, Stanisław Krajewski and Piotr Balcerowicz. It was even bigger than the first congress. Saul Kripke (New York), Dov Gabbay (London) and Laurent Lafforgue (Paris) were among the plenary speakers. Among the publications resulting from the congresses are several special issues of Logica Universalis (Springer), Sophia (Springer) and the Journal of Applied Logics (College Publications), as well as an anthology published by Springer. In 2018, it was announced that the 3rd WoCoLoR would take place in one of the most famous holy cities in the world: Varanasi, India. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the congress had to be postponed twice. It will now take place at November 4-8, 2022, during the Kartik Purnima festival, at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. In 2021, as a natural consequence of the project, the Logic and Religion Association (LARA) was created.
