Several new set-theoretical principles and axioms mathsmatical discussed in this section. However, it will not satisfy a philosopher interested in learning about the foundational aspects of the area.

My only mathematiical here is that no example of an elementary priority argu- ment is given. Hermann Weyl’s words in his expository masterpiece The Classical Groups seem more than ever relevant: According to Shoenfield, lf axioms are discovered by meditating on the concept of the transfinite type hierarchy.

The ax- iom of constructibility has a great deal to recommend it; if it were adopted, all we would miss would be the monstrous cardinal numbers mentioned above. The handbook is divided into four parts: Fourman provides an axiomatization of the logic of topoi a topos is a kind of general non-classical analogue of the classical universe of sets. Each of the four parts begins with a short guide to the chapters that follow.


Most set theorists seem to follow him in this, though for reasons that are obscure to me. Deflationism and Arithmetical Truth. Most of standard mathematics can in fact be formalized in very weak formal systems, some of which Feferman discusses at length.

However that may be, these cardinals are certainly ‘hairy’ enough. Logc is a sign of handobok currentstate of logic that the book is a compilation of only loosely related articles rather than a survey written like the books of Chruch and Kleene from a single unified point of view.

The book is certainly a gold-mine of information on modern logic, but would be difficult for a beginner, particularly unaided by a good teacher.

The general thrust of this research seems to be aimed at clarifying the structure of the classical continuum by looking at sets barrwise numbers with relatively simple definitions at least this idea is stressed in Martin’s interesting article on descriptive set theorybut the ideas seem elusive to an outsider like myself.


I prefer the open landscape under a clear sky with its depth of perspective, where the wealth of sharply defined nearby details gradually fades away toward the horizon. In the presentdecadethe role of standardlogic referenceis fulfilledby the presentvolume.

No one at present has the faintest idea how to answer this question. To ask other readers questions about Handbook of Mathematical Logicplease sign up.

Mathematicians will find that this book provides them with a unique opportunity to apprise themselves of developments in logi other than their own. At present, the Handbook is the only text to which students can be confidently referred for a good survey of developments in classical logic up to the mid ‘s.

Yet we have still to answer some of the simplest and most basic questions in the subject. The standards in the second case are much stricter, because here we have to compare the book with such fine examples of ex- pository writing as the famous texts mentioned above.
