28052019 ssSMVDU Katra, May 2019. Mr. Sumanta Sarathi Sharma, a senior faculty member, in the School of Philosophy and Culture (SoPC) at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU), Katra, presented a research paper, entitled, “Applying Ockham’s Razor to (In)valid syllogisms using Venn-Peirce framework” in the 2nd International Workshop on the Philosophy of Notation, held at the University of Bologna, Italy, from 22-24 May 2019. The session was chaired by Prof. Atsushi Shimojima from Doshisha University, Japan, and the workshop was jointly organized by the University of Bologna (Italy) and University of Brighton (UK). The theme of the workshop is operational iconicity and observational advantages. These properties of logical notations seem to be inextricably linked and have been closely studied, but are still difficult to understand. Mr. Sharma’s research article, which had innumerable and priceless inputs from his supervisors, Dr. A.K. Tewari and Dr. M.M. Chaturvedi, was deeply rooted in diagrammatic reasoning and presented a fresh overview on the theory of syllogisms. It was the only Indian contribution to the conference and was appreciated by the Congress for its rigor and novelty. Prof. D. Mukhopadhyay (Vice Chancellor, SMVDU) congratulated the team for its unstinting efforts to achieve excellence.
