- Early history of mathematical logic
- Philosophy of language
- Philosophical logic
The principles of the Logic Museum are
- To provide material as close to the original source as possible (critical editions, transcriptions, manuscripts).
- To widen the knowledge of medieval logic and philosophy by the use of
- clear and accessible summarisation of the primary material.
- To classify the authority of a source by provenance or forms of editorial review.
- To make all material searchable by means of
- markup ('anchors') and semantic tagging
- standardised Latin spelling
- To encourage scholars to participate by
- incentives such as ‘ownership’ (or shared ownership) of areas of the Museum
- a congenial and user-friendly editing environment and platform.
