Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Zalamea on Sheaf Logic

Posted by David Corfield

Zachary Luke Fraser writes to me of a seminar which was given by Fernando Zalamea last week at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht on 29 September. If the webpage for the seminar – Sheaf Logic & Philosophical Synthesis – isn’t working, you can access an audio file of it.

From the webpage, you’ll also be able to find a link to a draft of Zachary’s English translation of a few chapters from Zalamea’s Synthetic Philosophy of Contemporary Mathematics. Now we can read his favourable opinions on my own book in English.

Zalamea’s work has cropped up before at the Café, and earlier.

Re: Zalamea on Sheaf Logic

Thanks for posting this, David. We’ve got a new version of the recording up at the Internet Archive now, with somewhat better sound quality, thanks to my technically adept friend Julian Rohrhuber. You can find it HERE.

The volume level is steadier, and there are far less scratchy, hissing sounds in the background.
