WHAT IS "METALOGICON"
has been founded in 1988 by CARLO D'AMELIO (professor of thermal
machinery and director of the department of machinery in the Federico
II University of Naples) and by
MICHELE MALATESTA (professor of Logic in the Philosophy and
Literature faculty of the Federico II University of Naples). The two
scholars, following several participations to the Logic section of the International Conference on System research, Informatics and Cybernetics,
felt in need to create an international, interdisciplinary and
trans-disciplinary journal which would bring into focus and extend
knowledge at least some of the important themes debated during the
course of the sessions themselves.
METALOGICON is an half-yearly review of pure and applied logic, linguistics and philosophy.
It has a scientific-humanistic footprint, and is appealed to an
international scientific community: for this reason has chosen English
as mother tongue. Many scholars all over the world have contributed to
the journal across the years: it is appreciated both nationally and
That the intended aim has been achieved can be seen from the requests
of interchange: these range from libraries and national academies to
prestigious reviews, from both secular and catholic universities, from
jewish and muslim sources and from mathematics departmentes to those of
philosophy, linguistics and theology.
This website is the digital version of a journal first published twenty
years ago: it has never and never will pursue economic aims, but
scientific ones only. For this reason it is not for sale and can be
obtained only by exchanges: such the need to put it on the world
wide web, following the pursuit of granting it a better availability to
those could be interested in.
Metalogicon ha obtained the approval of the Court of Naples in 1988, and since 1998 has been printed in Rome.
