Summary: Within three years, it will be dealt with logic being developed on the territory of Croatia in the 20th century, so that the following will be included: J. Stadler's logic and a number of mostly shorter writings dating from the beginning of the century, A. Bazala's logic (the manuscript and the published writings) and M. Petras's logic, as well as logic in V. Filipović's and K. Grimm's writings. The reviews and the analyses of these authors will also comprise the most impor- tant of those philosophers who did not have any separate logical writings, but rather came in contact with logic while dealing with related disciplines (especially gnoseology). All the logical topics will be discussed (the essence of logic, concept, judgement, inference, general methodology), with special respect to the relationship of the traditional and the mathematical logic. Logic in Croatian philosophy will be examined with respect both to the parallel situation in logic in the rest of Europe and the world, and to the particular development of philosophy in Croatia. Special attention will be paid to establishing Croatian logical terminology in the mentioned period.

Keywords: logic, logism, psychologism, concept, judgement, inference, methodology, Croatian philosophy, neoscholasticism

Research goals: The aims of the research are: A. to determine which logical theories and trends were present inCroatia in the first half of the 20th century, and to examinetheir relationship to the contemporary development of logic inthe rest of Europe and the world; B. to present, analyze and assess everyone of the logical theories that occurred in Croatia in the mentioned period, as well as to reconstruct the main directions and tendencies of their historical development; C. to determine the relationship of logic of the period to gnoseology, psychology and mathematics, and, especially, to "mathematical logic"; D. to determine the main characteristics of Croatian logical terminology in the mentioned period, particularly with respect to the preceding period; E. to extend the existing bibliography of Croatian logical writings from 1850 to 1945. The following results should be achieved: 1. the first complete review of the development of logic in Croatia in the mentioned period; 2. the first presentation of Bazala's important manuscript concerning logic; 3. a contribution to a more evident determination of the essence and of the fundamental topics of formal logic, as distinct from other disciplines. The research should result in four scientific papers: 1) on neoscholastic logic at the beginning of the 20th century (Stadler), 2) on other logical writings at the beginning of the century, 3) on logic in A. Bazala's and M. Petras's work and 4) on logic by the end of the treated period (the begin- ning of forties: Filipović, Grimm). The following texts will be prepared for publication: a) "The Introduction" and "The Principles of Making Judgements" from Bazala's manuscript on "Logic", as well as b) some parts from the introductory and the systematic parts of Marković's manuscript on "Logic".
