In this project I deepen the analysis of the internal logic of set theory - topic of my FAPESP project - proposing a logical analysis of the notion of consistency and its role in the set theoretical practice. This project has a multidisciplinary point of view and tries to combine the philosophical reflection about mathematical practice and the logical description of a mathematical structure. The aim of this project consists in investigating the structure of the multiverse - the collection of all possible universes of set theory provided by the method of forcing - in the search for the more appropriate logic that describes it. I propose to define a new logic that, similar to the case of LFs, includes a logical operator that is meantto formalize the notion of consistency how it is used in set theory. In order to justify the axioms of this logic I propose to use the tools of the philosophy of mathematical practice and to investigate the philosophical problems linked to the use of practice in understanding mathematical phenomena.
