The past decades have seen increased activity in the study and modelling of human behaviour, reasoning and language, often in conjunction with computational insights.  In response to this broader development, new areas of logic have emerged, while old areas have shifted and evolved.  The result has been a broad and influential interdisciplinary position for logic, at the border of mathematics and philosophy, as well as computer science, linguistics and other fields.

Studies in Logic and Practical Reasoning is a companion series to Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, which the latter has done so much to keep the record of the mathematical turn in logic at an earlier stage.  Studies in Logic and Practical Reasoning seeks to keep the record, with equal distinction, of logic's broader turn toward issues of information, computation, and practical reasoning.  Our interests in this are both pure and applied.  We cover a broad spectrum of logic-oriented topis as they exist today in philosophy, computer science, and linguistics, while also encouraging new links to cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and emerging fields such as quantum computation.
