Reasoning Evening: Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda: Making Sense of Modal Logic

How can we reason about statements like “It is possible that Axinn Library has 11 stories” and “It is necessary that Axinn Library has 11 stories”? Are these sentences related? If so, how? We’ll talk about different rules people are willing to take for granted about statements like these and whether we think these rules make sense.

Presenter/discussion leader: Johanna Franklin, Department of Mathematics

Where: Heger Hall First Floor Lounge (go through the glass doors to the open space in the middle of the building)

This discussion is a Reasoning Evening hosted by Hofstra’s Minor in Data Analysis and Scientific Reasoning.
