    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    First published in 1971, Professor Putnam's essay concerns itself with the ontological problem in the philosophy of logic and mathematics - that is, the issue of whether the abstract entities spoken of in logic and mathematics really exist.

  • Der Wert der Vagheitby Nora Kluck

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    In classical logic, vagueness is an undesirable property for predicates. However, this study suggests for the first time the benefits of vagueness in natural language. Communicating through vague predicates is usually successful. They enable efficient, economical, and flexible communication. The study examines whether vagueness in the law has positive... more...

  • How To Do Things With Logicby C. Grant Luckhardt; William Bechtel; Grant Luckhardt

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    In the past 15 years a host of critical thinking books have appeared that teach students to find flaws in the arguments of others by learning to detect a number of informal fallacies. This book is not in that tradition. The authors of this book believe that while students learn to become vicious critics, they still continue to make the very mistakes... more...

  • Forcing for Mathematiciansby Nik Weaver

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 70.00

    Ever since Paul Cohen's spectacular use of the forcing concept to prove the independence of the continuum hypothesis from the standard axioms of set theory, forcing has been seen by the general mathematical community as a subject of great intrinsic interest but one that is technically so forbidding that it is only accessible to specialists. In... more...

    Wiley 2014; US$ 16.95

    Never come second place again Say goodbye to feelings of inadequacy – never again will you have to look on while someone else gets that promotion you wanted, wins the pitch you went for or beats you on the playing field.
