The interface of logic and philosophy is diverse, and has always been so. Understanding the interplay raises issues on which some philosophers have strong a priori views. My own preference as a working logician is to proceed by actual history of ideas, something still largely to be written for modern logic. I will present a few lines connecting logic and philosophy around the theme of implication and consequence, and show how rich the agenda is as it keeps evolving with contributions from many disciplines. This is a light survey paper, but I supply references for readers who want to see more of the nitty-gritty details.

To appear in a newly founded journal of philosophy, Tsinghua University.
