Uploaded a Course Syllabus
This course differs from the Advanced Logic graduate course in that in it the students do not cover any technical material and do not acquire a proficiency in use of a formal language. Instead, in Philosophy of Logic we philosophize about logic and ask fundamental philosophical questions about formal systems that represent logical reasoning.

This course will be offered as part of the new MA in Philosophy, which will offer its first courses in Fall 2015.
