Editorial Reviews

Review

"...useful...this book is well designed for its intended purpose." Mathematical Reviews

"These essays will be seen to be even more important once mathematicians and software engineers realize that what they thought was new and novel to their fields (E-logic and E+-logic and the various other names that these logics go by in mathematics and computer science) are varieties of free logic and were first discovered 30-45 years ago." Raymond Gumb, Department of Computer Science, University of Massachusetts, Lowell

"Lucid in its prose and clear in its presentation of logical points.... Recommended." Choice

"simple solutions for complex and deep problems is what we are looking for after all and this book of essays throws in a third element that is specifically tied to its author, namely a clarity of exposition and presentation that at moments makes the book actually fun to read." - Jean Paul Van Bendegem

The purpose of this collection is to bring an important body of work to the attention of a new generation of professional philosophers, computer scientists, and mathematicians.
