Course Unit

Formal logic







Course Description

This course aims to familiarise students with fundamental methods used in formal logic, while taking an approach of the study of classical logics. We first focus on fundamentals of first order logic, focusing on one hand on conception and formulation of formal proofs of logical theorems, and on the other hand on solving logical problems using these logical theorems. We introduce syntax and semantics of propositional logic and of the calculation of predicates.
