This course is an introduction to formal logic focused on first-order predicate logic with identity — logic based on translations of simple sentences like "Snow is white" and "Pat is hungry" into an artificial language. Studying this artificial language, we will develop some tools to help us understand and evaluate ordinary sentences and arguments of English. We will also develop a better understanding of important philosophical concepts, such as truth and meaning. The course will cover some of the so-called model theory and proof theory of our artificial language, as well as some of the metatheoretical connections between the two.
