Description

Intermediate Course in Logic

Through the course, the student will receive an introduction to philosophical logics and understand their motivations, their relation to philosophical issues and their formal developments (semantics, inferential systems). The course will give the possibility to develop presentation skills and is also intended to prepare the student for the Master's thesis.

Depending on the docent, the course will cover topics including modal, temporal and epistemic logic, intuitionistic logic, conditional logic, counterfactuals, and non-normal modal logics.

Handouts and selected readings from research articles and textbooks will be provided during the course.
Literature exam:
