This thesis is concerned with a family of position which are labelled as logical nihilism. There are two main theses which are denoted by this term: First, Gillian Russell defends the thesis that there are no logical laws. Second, Aaron Cotnoir maintains that we cannot capture natural language consequence with our formal tools. The goal of this thesis is twofold as well: First, the arguments both authors provide for their respective position are presented and subsequently supplied with clarifications and further refinement. The second step of the thesis is to criticize these arguments in their strengthened form.
