    Om Logic of Being

    In The Logic of Being, Paul Livingston examines the relationship of truth and time from a perspective that draws on Martin Heidegger's thought and twentieth-century analytic philosophy. In his influential earlier work The Politics of Logic, Livingston elaborated an innovative "formal" or "metaformal" realism. Here he extends this concept into a " temporal realism" that accounts for the reality of temporal change and becoming while also preserving realism about logic and truth.Livingston's formal and phenomenological analysis articulates and defends a realist position about being, time, and their relationship that understands that all of these are structured and constituted in a way that does not depend on the human mind, consciousness, or subjectivity. This approach provides a basis for new logically and phenomenologically based accounts of the structure of linguistic truth in relation to the appearance of objects and of the formal structure of time as given.  Livingston draws on philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Davidson and Heidegger in this exploration. In it, readers and scholars will discover innovative connections between continental and analytic philosophy.
