Inferring Truth and Meaning

The disciplines of general philosophy, philosophy of language, and linguistics have in common an interest in saying what it is that we can infer: what meaning, what truth; and how those inferences are to be justified. The papers collected in this special issue all contribute further to these continuing discussions. They exhibit a wide range of approaches and starting points, and, taken together, we believe that this collection provides a stimulating overview of some key current concerns in the fields of argumentation, linguistics, and philosophy of language, in particular the role of inferring in both reasoning and understanding.

Studia Semiotyczne (Semiotic Studies) is a journal founded in 1970 by Jerzy Pelc, who was its Editor-in-Chief up until 2015. Between 1970 and 2015 Studia Semiotyczne was published non-periodically (during that period 29 volumes have been published). The list of authors who have published in Studia Semioryczne include, among others: Izydora Dąmbska, Peter Thomas Geach, Jerzy Giedymin, Andrzej Grzegorczyk, Henryk Hiż, Jerzy Kalinowski, Leon Koj, Jerzy Kmita, Wiesław Kotański, Władysław Kunicki-Goldfinger, Jerzy Kuryłowicz, Wacław Mejbaum, Leszek Nowak, Chaim Perelman, Marian Przełęcki, Krzysztof Rotter, Thomas A. Sebeok, Barbara Stanosz, Władysław Tatarkiewicz and Mieczysław Wallis. In December 2015 Studia Semiotyczne was formally transformed into a six-monthly publication simultaneously in print and on the Internet. Papers accepted for publication in the journal revolve around various aspects of semiotics (conceived in the Morris-Carnap sense) and philosophy. All submitted papers are subject to the triple blind peer review. English versions of some of them are additionally published in the open digital base Studia Semiotyczne—English Supplement. Studia Semiotyczne is published by The Polish Semiotic Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Semiotyczne).
The journal is indexed in BazHum, CEEOL, CEJSH, DOAJ, EBSCO Discovery Service, ERIH Plus, Index Copernicus, Library of Science, Philosopher’s Index, PhilPapers, POL-index, and Scopus.
We invite all authors interested in the philosophy of language, general theory of signs (in the Morris-Carnap tradition) and the theory of language to publish in Studia Semiotyczne. We welcome articles in the field of philosophy of language, general theory of signs, applications of semantic methods in philosophy, philosophical aspects of linguistics, philosophical aspects of psycholinguistics and cognitive science, semiotic aspects of philosophy of mind, philosophical consequences of metalogic and the theory of formal languages, analysis of the language of philosophy and philosophical argumentation, as well as the history of ideas in semiotics and logic. The Editorial Board also accepts remembrances, reports, reviews and polemics.
