Logic and Ontology

  • Czeslaw Lejewski
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 149)

Abstract

My discussion of the topic prescribed by the title of the paper will consist of two parts. In Part I, I propose to discuss, in very general and informal terms, the nature of logic and ontology, and the relationship that seems to connect these two disciplines. In Part II, I intend to examine, in some detail, a certain specific problem, which concerns logicians as well as ontologists, a problem which has been with us for about forty years, and which lacks a generally acceptable solution. Now, without further preliminaries let us turn at once to Part I.
