9780691160443: Three Views of Logic: Mathematics, Philosophy, and Computer Science

Demonstrating the different roles that logic plays in the disciplines of computer science, mathematics, and philosophy, this concise undergraduate textbook covers select topics from three different areas of logic: proof theory, computability theory, and nonclassical logic. The book balances accessibility, breadth, and rigor, and is designed so that its materials will fit into a single semester. Its distinctive presentation of traditional logic material will enhance readers' capabilities and mathematical maturity. The proof theory portion presents classical propositional logic and first-order logic using a computer-oriented (resolution) formal system. Linear resolution and its connection to the programming language Prolog are also treated. The computability component offers a machine model and mathematical model for computation, proves the equivalence of the two approaches, and includes famous decision problems unsolvable by an algorithm. The section on nonclassical logic discusses the shortcomings of classical logic in its treatment of implication and an alternate approach that improves upon it: Anderson and Belnap's relevance logic. Applications are included in each section. The material on a four-valued semantics for relevance logic is presented in textbook form for the first time. Aimed at upper-level undergraduates of moderate analytical background, Three Views of Logic will be useful in a variety of classroom settings. * Gives an exceptionally broad view of logic * Treats traditional logic in a modern format * Presents relevance logic with applications * Provides an ideal text for a variety of one-semester upper-level undergraduate courses

Review :

"Overall, this is a well-written text with challenging exercises, proofs of important theorems, and a modern integrated approach."--Choice

"The book can serve as material for a course that teaches the role of logic in several disciplines. It can also be used as a supplementary text for a logic course that emphasizes the more traditional topics of logic but wishes to include a few special topics. Moreover, it can be a valuable resource for researchers and academics."--Roman Murawski, Zentralblatt MATH

"It's always interesting to find a text that reimagines, and offers a novel approach to, a fairly standard subject. This book does that for logic. . . . There is a lot of interesting and well-presented material found here that cannot be easily found elsewhere in a book at this level."--Mark Hunacek, Mathematical Association of America blog

"An instructor of a logic course offered by a mathematics department who is interested in some experimentation will undoubtedly find this book quite rewarding. . . . Even an instructor who is not planning to teach a course along these lines, but who is interested in the subject, will want to look at this text; there is a lot of interesting and well-presented material found here that cannot be easily found elsewhere in a book at this level."--Mark Hunacek, MAA blog

From the Back Cover :

"Formal logic should no longer be taught as a course within a single subject area, but should be taught from an interdisciplinary perspective. Three Views of Logic has many fine features and combines materials not found together elsewhere. We have needed an accessible textbook like this one for quite some time."--Hans Halvorson, Princeton University

"This concise, precise, and clear textbook is unique in the range of material covered and the level at which it is written, which is intended for undergraduates. The exercises are a considerable help to the student and the examples are useful and interesting."--David Plaisted, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

"Loveland, Hodel, and Sterrett are all internationally recognized and leading researchers in their field. Their new textbook gives an excellent introduction to the resolution of propositional and first-order predicate logic, and an outstanding overview of computability theory. The examples and exercises are well chosen, and the material is accessible to students without a logic background."--Frank Wolter, University of Liverpool
