PHIL 736

Logic 1


Description

This course gives you the fundamental mathematical and logical tools to undertake research in applied modal logic. We will emphasise model theoretic techniques and investigate how to choose logical languages for modeling purposes. The upshot of the course is that modal logic, seen as a fragment of first-order logic, provides an ideal balance between expressivity and complexity for practical investigations.
