Dec 11, Alex rated it liked it Shelves: A Mathematical Introduction to Logic eventually became part of a logical trilogy, with the publication of the wonderfully lucid Elements of Set Theory and Computability Theory We also get an exploration which can be postponed of the idea of proofs by induction and the Recursion Theorem, and based on these we get proper hegbert of unique readability and the uniqueness of the extension of a valuation of atoms to a valuation of a set of sentences containing them perhaps not the most inviting things for a beginner to be pausing long over.
Some might think this chapter to be slightly odd. The endegton died inbut his webpages live on, including one with his own comments on his second edition. Fascinating material; the book, unfortunately, is too terse and inconsistent it how it presents definitions and examples of which there are too few.
The author has made this edition more accessible to better meet the needs of today’s undergraduate mathematics and philosophy students. For the usual motivation for separating off propositional logic and giving it an extended treatment at the beginning of a book at this level is that this enables us to introduce and contrast the key ideas of semantic entailment and of provability in a formal deductive system, and then explain strategies for soundness and completeness proofs, all in a helpfully simple and uncluttered initial framework.
