The Boundary Stones of Thought. An Essay in the Philosophy of Logic.
Oxford University Press, 2017. 368p. Paperback. Rumfitt's book is dense and rich. There is no doubt that it makes an important contribution to the debate between intuitionistic and classical logicians. ... Although the book defends classical logic, Rumfitt clearly takes the challenges posed by intuitionists seriously; this makes for a very engaging read. The Boundary Stones of Thought has much to offer to anyone interested in the philosophy of logic or philosophical logic, such as a sophisticated methodology for advancing a debate between competing logics, a novel account of the nature of logic, and several promising semantic theories. It is to be hoped that it finds a wide readership among philosophers and logicians, within but also beyond the debate about intuitionistic logic.
