Philosophy and Model Theory
Publication Date 8 Mar 2018
OverviewModel theory is an important area of mathematical logic which has deep philosophical roots, many philosophical applications, and great philosophical interest in itself. The aim of this book is to introduce, organise, survey, and develop these connections between philosophy and model theory, for the benefit of philosophers and logicians alike. It is written with an eye towards accessibility: the only prerequisite is any introductory logic course, and definitions and concepts are built-up incrementally as the book proceeds, with shorter proofs given in the body of the text and longer proofs relegated to the appendices of the chapters.
