Resumo

The expressions ‘form’, ‘structure’, ‘schema’, ‘shape’, ‘pattern’, ‘figure’, ‘mold’, and related locutions are used in logic both as technical terms and in metaphors. This paper juxtaposes, distinguishes, and analyses uses of these expressions by logicians. No such project has been attempted previously. After establishing general terminology, we present a variant of traditional usage of the expression ‘logical form’ followed by a discussion of the usage found in the twovolume Chateaubriand book Logical Forms (2001 and 2005)—the most comprehensive work on the subject ever written and in many ways the focus of this paper.

 

Resumo:

As expressões ‘forma’, ‘estrutura’, ‘esquema’, ‘formato’, ‘modelo’, ‘figura’, ‘molde’, e termos relacionados são usados em lógica tanto como termos técnicos quanto como em metáforas. O presente artigo justapõe, diferencia e analisa o uso destas expressões por lógicos. Nunca se tentou levar a cabo um tal projeto antes. Após estabelecer uma terminologia geral, apresentamos uma variante do uso tradicional da expressão ‘forma lógica’, seguida de uma discussão do uso encontrado nos dois volumes do livro Logical Forms (2001 e 2005) de Chateaubriand - o trabalho mais abrangente já escrito sobre o assunto e, em larga medida, o foco deste artigo.
