Many-Valued Logics

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


I shall endeavour to cover as many branches of many-valued logic and as much of the work done in these branches as space permits. Much must, of course, be omitted, and I should therefore like to refer to an excellent bibliography of many-valued logics by Nicholas Rescher in his book (Many-Valued Logic, McGraw Hill 51893,1969). This only covers publications to 1965, so I have given a few references (at the end of the text) to papers published since that date.

  1. A complete list of publications on many-valued logics since 1965 would, of course, be far too long to he given here, but a few examples of the publications referred to in the text are given. Even a complete list of these publications would be somewhat lengthy and the omission of a paper from this list does not imply that it is considered to be un¬important. A few papers published before 1965 are included as they have considerable relevance to topics from many-valued logics discussed above, although they concern directly only 2-valued logic and are therefore omitted from Reseller’s bibliography.Google Scholar
