The Language of First-Order Logic, 3rd Editionby Jon Barwise, John Etchemendy, Barwise,Jon, John Etchemendy, Olender
This text/courseware package presents a new approach to teaching first-order logic. Taking advantage of Tarski's World 4.0, the text skilfully balances the semantic conception of logic with methods of proof. The book contains eleven chapters, in four parts. Part I is about propositional logic, Part II about quantifier logic. Part III contains chapters on set theory and inductive definitions. Part IV contains advanced topics in logic, including topics of importance in applications of logic in computer science. The Language of First-order Logic contains hundreds of problems and exercises for the user to work through.
