Editor's Introduction1

    Graham Priest discusses philosophical logic in his interview. He clarifies what philosophical logic is and why he thinks some key orthodox beliefs about truth and rationality are mistaken. He also outlines his own proposals for addressing this. He explains paraconsistent logic, which he proposes is required to address the mistaken belief that propositions are always either true or false. Dialetheism, his own species of paraconsistent logic, is explained, which allows for the existence of true contradictions. He talks about this and its relationship with Buddhism, Aristotle, its history, and its relation to science, false advertising, hypocrisy, Hegel, and Marx.
