Abstract

A motivation behind one kind of logical pluralism is the thought that there are different kinds of objects, and that reasoning about situations involving these different kinds requires different kinds of logics. Given this picture, a natural question arises: what kind of logical apparatus is appropriate for situations which concern more than one kind of objects, such as may arise, for example, when considering the interactions between the different kinds? The paper articulates an answer to this question, deploying the methodology of Chunk and Permeate, developed in a different context by Brown and Priest (J Philos Log 33:379-388, 2004). © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
