Summary 
This volume is the first ever collection devoted to the field of prooftheoretic semantics. Contributions address topics including the systematics of introduction and elimination rules and proofs of normalization, the categorial characterization of deductions, the relation between Heyting's and Gentzen's approaches to meaning, knowability paradoxes, prooftheoretic foundations of set theory, Dummett's justification of logical laws, Kreisel's theory of constructions, paradoxical reasoning, and the defence of model theory. The field of prooftheoretic semantics has existed for almost 50 years, but the term itself was proposed by SchroederHeister in the 1980s. Prooftheoretic semantics explains the meaning of linguistic expressions in general and of logical constants in particular in terms of the notion of proof. This volume emerges from presentations at the Second International Conference on ProofTheoretic Semantics in Tübingen in 2013, where contributing authors were asked to provide a selfcontained description and analysis of a significant research question in this area. The contributions are representative of the field and should be of interest to logicians, philosophers, and mathematicians alike.
