About the Author

Heinrich Wansing is a professor of logic and epistemology at the Ruhr University Bochum (Germany). He is known for his work in philosophical logic, including the semantics and proof theory of modal, constructive, paraconsistent, many-valued and other non-classical logics. Moreover, he is the editor-in-chief of the book series Trends in Logic (Springer)


“Swedish logician and philosopher Dag Prawitz and his distinguished contributions to philosophical and mathematical logic are the focus of this book. … This is an excellent book, celebrating not only Prawitz’s career, but also a movement in the contrary direction of W. V. O Quine’s views against the so-called (somehow prejudicially) ‘deviant’ logics, and I cannot forbear from congratulating the editor for the distinctive choice of topics and for the general tone of the book.” (Walter Carnielli, Computing Reviews, May, 2015)
