127: Philosophical Logic

Lectures HT21

These are the core lectures for students taking FHS Paper 127. But they may also be of interest to others who want to learn about the technical details and philosophical applications of extensions to (and deviations from) classical logic.

There will also be two additional lectures in weeks 1 and 2. These deal with the mathematical methods used in the course, and are aimed at students who did not take the second logic paper, Elements of Deductive Logic, for Prelims.

The paper is studied in conjunction with a set textbook, Theodore Sider’s Logic for Philosophy (Oxford University Press). I recommend that you read the indicated sections of the book before attending the lecture each week.

This year’s lecture recordings, notes, and exercises are available on the canvas page.
