This is a reminder for:

Title: Paul Redding, Sydney
"Hegel's weakly inferentialist, pluralist logic"

With his "inferentialist" approach to semantics, Robert Brandom has shed  
light on one dimension of Hegel's strangely sounding claim that the  
syllogism is the "truth" of the judgment: we cannot have a conception of  
what is actually said in a judgment without understanding its relations to  
other judgments in patterns of inference. In this paper I argue that on  
examination Hegel's inferentialism is weaker than Brandom's own, in that  
for Hegel inferential relations are necessary but not sufficient for a  
judgment to have content. This in turn, I suggest, is linked to the  
pluralist nature of his logic--that is, that Hegel employs two distinct  
senses of logical consequence. Finally, I suggest an alternative way of  
thinking of the dynamics of Hegel's logic by weakening what Brandom  
discusses in terms of the notion of "doxastic commitment" to include the  
role of the attitude of presupposition.
