Unit description:

Continues the study of logic begun in Introduction to Logic . Topics include more advanced metatheory of first-order predicate calculus (including completeness and incompleteness results) and an introduction to modal logics. The latter are logics enriched with the operators ‘possibly’ and ‘necessarily’. Both the metatheory and modal logics covered in this unit have many interesting applications and raise many philosophical issues, some of which will be addressed.
