PHIL 32 Intermediate Logic

An investigation of three branches of symbolic logic: first-order predicate logic with identity, sentential modal logic, and predicate modal logic. Topics to be covered may include Russell's theory of definite descriptions; the treatment of non-denoting terms in logics known as "free logics;" investigations of various modalities, involving pairs of concepts such as necessity and possibility, being obligatory and being permitted, and being known and being believed; Kripke-style "possible world" semantics.

Prerequisite

PHIL 6, or MATH 39 or MATH 69, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture

QDS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.

Offered

Not offered in the period of 17F through 19S
