PHIL2610 - Exploring Nonclassical Logic
Semester 1, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Nicholas Smith
Classical logic is what you study in introductory units such as PHIL1012. This unit covers major extensions of and alternatives to classical logic, such as temporal, modal, intuitionist, relevance, and many-valued logics. As well as looking at the internal workings of these logics, we examine some of their applications, and the philosophical issues surrounding them.
