Help needed with History of logic post-WWII[edit]

The article History of logic has been nominated for a featured article here. The nominating editor has asked for help concerning the post-WWII period (see this post). Any assistant would be appreciated

Request for input in discussion forum[edit]

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

Conflict at Reductio ad absurdum[edit]

There is an edit conflict over whether the sentence "Society must have laws, otherwise there would be chaos" is a reductio ad absurdum argument. Outside opinions are needed. Please stop by at Removal of example from introduction. Thanks --ChetvornoTALK 21:40, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

No article on cogency[edit]

We need an article or at least section on the concept, in logic, philosophy, and law, of cogency, and how it is distinct from related concepts. The DAB page at Cogent should be moved to Cogent (disambiguation) and the bare word redirected to Cogency when we have an article there (or redirected to the same place that one goes, if we have a section on cogency in another article). For the time being, I redirected Cogency, which was a redlink, to Logical reasoning which addresses it is little bit, but is a stub that badly needs work.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  18:10, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

axiomatic theory, mathematical theory, axiomatic system[edit]

Hi, I don't really know the history but I noticed a potential inter(and intra)wiki mess. In french it seems that w:fr:théorie axiomatique refers to the axioms that define a theory with all their consequences, whereas in en "axiomatic system" - axiomatic theory redirects to this - the set of all consequences is named mathematical theory which is an article about subfield of maths and has no word about axiomatic theories.

As the definition is not sourced all this needs discussion. Anybody up to this here ? TomT0m (talk) 17:07, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

The article is at theory (mathematical logic). --Trovatore (talk) 17:41, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
@Trovatore: Thanks for the tip ! Next question then : should not axiomatic theory redirect to this latter article than to the former ? This is important because on ptwiki - I don't know the language but required for a call for merger between their axiomatic theory to their axiomatic system article to be able to merge https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Interwiki_conflicts/Unresolved/2016#th.C3.A9orie_axiomatique_.28Q9295456.29.2Fth.C3.A9orie_axiomatique_.28Q792542.29 which I'm beginning to think is incorrect and the only opinion is related to this redirect : https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Fus%C3%A3o/Central_de_fus%C3%B5es/Sistema_axiom%C3%A1tico;_Teoria_axiom%C3%A1tica TomT0m (talk) 08:54, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
