Looking for a more exhaustive definition of the term "logic", which renders justice of its many nuances, one comes across the reductionist tendency to identify this science -- in its general sense -- with its only deductive part. We can ear the echo of this tendency also in non-specialistic dictionaries, in which the definition of logic, as "science of the correct reasoning", implicitly or explicitly refers to features only typical of the deductive logic.
A critique of this standard and incorrect definition is the basis to introduce the notion of "context-situated reasoning": a notion formally introduced by Piazza and Pulcini, whose philosophical consequences are:
A different general definition of logic closer to the concept of human rationality;
An alternative to the old and stale debate between monists and pluralists;
A total rethinking of the relationship between classical and non-classical logics (especially non monotonic, paraconsistent and relevance logics).
