This is a reminder for:

Title: Moritz Cordes
Logic: The Study of Inference in ONE Language"

f one adopts the view that Logic is (also) the science of resoning or  
inference and furthermore accepts that not only reasoning in formal but  
also in natural language belongs to the scope of Logic, the question arises  
how to adequately represent natural reasoning in formal systems. The most  
likely candidate systems for that task seem to be linear calculi of natural  
deduction. I would like to take a look at some such calculi and try to show  
how certain important features of natural reasoning are not carried over  
into the formal derivations. Instead the formal systems considered add  
features that can't be found in natural reasoning, and which are at the  
same time problematic from a technical point of view. Finally, I would like  
to discuss a technically harmless way out of this discrepancy between  
natural reasoning and its formal representation.
