Editorial Reviews


"The volume contains a vast array of goodies brought together in a nice package. It is likely to become and important sourcebook. Separate bibliographies are included for each essay...Recommended [for] graduate students and above."

- F. Wilson, University of Toronto in CHOICE, September 2007

From the Back Cover

The papers presented in this volume examine topics of central interest in contemporary philosophy of logic. The book brings together newly commissioned articles on state of the art research in contemporary philosophy of logic, organized according to a plan that encourages readers to explore the technical details of new developments in symbolic logic while keeping philosophical aspects of logic in sharp focus. The essays include work by some of the most prominent logicians, mathematicians and set theorists currently working in the field, covering topics that include the nature of logic and its implications for philosophy, as well as detailing specific formal theories in all major branches of the subject. The handbook is meant to be both a compendium of new work in symbolic logic and an authoritative resource for students and researchers, a book to be consulted for specific information about recent developments in logic and to be read with pleasure for its technical acumen and philosophical insights.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I regard Philosophy of Logic to provide a treasure-trove of discussions of some of the most vital issues in the philosophy of logic, and it is worthy of being the possession of any serious student (or amateur) of logic or the philosophy of logic.
