He is a founding member of the Brazilian Logic Society, of which he was president for two terms. He is an external member of the Center for Logic, Epistemology and History of Science of the State University of Campinas. The international recognition of his work led him to be elected a full member of the Institut International de Philosophie, based in Paris. Another distinction to which he was entitled was the volume Logic, Language and Knowledge: Essays in honor of Oswald Chateaubriand Filho, published in 1999. His work has focused on various topics, including (ontology, nature of logic, theory of descriptions, theory of truth and authors (Frege, Russell, Tarski, Quine, Goodman, among others). His intellectual production resulted in the publication of two volumes called Logical Forms, published in 2001 and 2005, which were the subject of two issues of the Brazilian journal Manuscrito, with critical articles by researchers from Brazil and abroad.We understand that, due to the importance that Chateaubriand's work has had for the development of analytical philosophy in Latin America, it is time for a well-deserved tribute at the II ALFAn School.
