Logic : Wilfrid Hodges :
Comparisons between traditional and modern logic tend to be based on an assumption that traditional logicians were aiming to do hodgees modern logicians do, but weren’t so good at it. Page 17 The word ‘quantifier’ appears first in De Morgan, as an abbreviation for ‘quantifying phrase’ – which comes from Hamilton as De Morgan logoc.
Hodges is a good logician, with many philosophical sensitivities – this shows in his brief treatment of various ‘controversial’ or ‘bizarre’ aspects of contemporary logic.
Solid intro to logic, which goes about its task in a for me odd way. On syllogisms that are mixtures of possible and absolute in the first figure. The talk was an appeal for help in measuring the relative difficulty or ‘naturalness’ of some types of inference rule.
Rigorous proofs of the adequacy and completeness proofs of the relevant logics are provided, with careful attention to the languages involved. Logic is about consistency – but not about all types of consistency. This is on Ibn Sina’s propositional logic. If you can’t sleep, give it a shot. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
The second discusses Ibn Sina’s treatment of the making and discharging of assumptions; see above. This one gets an extra star for wilfrie clever sources for the text in its examples.
There is a collection of texts to accompany the lectures, including eight pages of translation of Ibn Sina. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Ibn Sina seems to be giving his reader a string of 64 exercises to train the reader in a proof search algorithm for syllogisms.
Two basic themes in recent cognitive science studies of actual human reasoning are also introduced. Generally all adds up Here is an archived preprint of the published versionwhich includes some nontrivial corrections.
I still think it is correct in what it covers, but the absence of medieval logicians is unbalanced.
The paper has been submitted, but it contains no references and few quotations; instead I gave a reference to the present paper for a fuller account. Open Preview See a Problem?

For example, if a man supports Aresenal one day and Spurs the next, then he is fickle but not necessarily illogical. Wilfrid Hodges Last updated 13 October The two sections Qiyas iii.

I thought the book was good although the explanations and information was very short.

It might be perfect for people whose main interest isn’t math or logic but a related field, e. Logiic will be obvious that the translations are work in progress and very much at draft stage.
If a legal system helps the rich but not the poor then it is unjust but not illogical. Tony Street has a hodes translation in preparation. The Linda Problem 7.
I put it up because of the centrality of the topic. His work has connections with mathematical logic, mainly via non-standard free groups.
