Prescriptive Reasoning

Richard L. Epstein

Prescriptive Reasoning by Richard L. EpsteinThis series of books presents the fundamentals of logic in a style accessible to both students and scholars. The text of each essay presents a story, the main line of development of the ideas, while the notes and appendices place the research within a larger scholarly context. The essays overlap, forming a unified analysis of logic as the art of reasoning well, yet each essay is designed so that it may be read independently. The question addressed in this volume is how we can justify our beliefs through reasoning. The first essay, "Arguments," investigates what it is that we call true or false...

Conventional Gestures: Meaning and Methodology

Richard L. Epstein

Conventional Gestures: Meaning and Methodology by Richard L. EpsteinConventional gestures are those movements we make, such as waving hello and shaking hands, that are part of a learned, shared, symbolic system. In this book Richard L. Epstein working with the illustrator Alex Raffi examines how such gestures mean and how we can study them. Drawing on their collection of over 400 American gestures, available on the Advanced Reasoning Forum website, they examine problems of methodology and the nature of gestures in relation to the work of others who have studied and collected gestures from various cultures. An extensive annotated bibliography describes and comments...

Predicate Logic

L. Epstein Richard

Predicate Logic by L. Epstein RichardThe forms and scope of logic rest on assumptions of how language and reasoning connect to experience. In this volume an analysis of meaning and truth provides a foundation for studying modern propositional and predicate logics. Chapters on propositional logic, parsing propositions, and meaning, truth and reference give a basis for criteria that can be used to judge formalizations of ordinary language arguments. Over 120 worked examples of formalizations of propositions and arguments illustrate the scope and limitations of modern logic, as analyzed in chapters on identity, quantifiers, descriptive...

Computability: Computable Functions, Logic, and the Foundations of Mathematics

Richard L. Epstein & Walter A. Carnielli

Computability: Computable Functions, Logic, and the Foundations of Mathematics by Richard L. Epstein & Walter A. CarnielliNow in a new edition -- the classic presentation of the theory of computable functions in the context of the foundations of mathematics.

Part I motivates the study of computability with discussions and readings about the crisis in the foundations of mathematics in the early 20th century while presenting the basic ideas of whole number, function, proof, and real number.

Part II starts with readings from Turing and Post leading to the formal theory of recursive functions.

Part III presents sufficient formal logic to give a full development of Gödel's incompleteness theorems.

Part IV considers...

Propositional Logics Third Edition

Richard L. Epstein

Propositional Logics Third Edition by Richard L. EpsteinPropositional Logics presents the history, philosophy, and mathematics of the major systems of propositional logic. Classical logic, modal logics, many-valued logics, intuitionism, paraconsistent logics, and dependent implication are examined in separate chapters. Each begins with a motivation in the originators' own terms, followed by the standard formal semantics, syntax, and completeness theorem. The chapters on the various logics are largely self-contained so that the book can be used as a reference. An appendix summarizes the formal semantics and axiomatizations of the logics. The view...
