The Workshop will meet this semester on Mondays, 4.15-6-15, usually at the GC, though sometimes meetings may be at other places. The meetings are open to all interested. Please feel free to pass this announcement on.

The Logic & Metaphysics workshop is organized by Graham Priest.

Epistemic modals in mathematics:  The Goldbach conjecture might be true and it might be false

There is a lot of controversy over the semantics of epistemic modals.  But all (or almost all) accounts have the truth conditions for epistemic modals turn on whether the prejacent is entailed by or ruled out by a body of information.  This gives the wrong truth conditions when the prejacent is from mathematics.
