The book first offers information on intensional logic and alternative formulations of intensional logic. Topics include two-sorted type theory, normal forms, extensions and intensional logic, modal T-logic, persistence in intensional logic, generalized completeness of intensional logic, and natural language and intensional Edition: 1.

Intensional Logic Intensional logics are formal systems for representing and explaining the apparent failure of four logical principles. The four principles involved are: Existential Generalization, Existential Generalization, Substitutiv-ity, and Strong Extensionality.

These principles have played a File Size: 1MB. trees to expressions of intensional logic. If wh-questions and whether questions belong to the same syntactic category, they translate to expres sions of intensional logic which are of the same logical type.

From this it follows that they should denote things of the same sort. Question Embedding Verbs. Intensional logic, as understood here, is based on the broad presupposition that so-called "intensional contexts" in natural language can be explained semantically by the idea of multiple reference.

The text reviews tense, modality, and conditionals, then presents developments in intensional theory, including partiality and generalized quantifiers.

CHAPTER FIVE: INTENSIONAL TYPE LOGIC Intensionality. Up to now the logical languages we have considered are extensional: we saw that our type logical language satisfies the principle of extensionality: if we substitute in a complex expression φ, α for β, and α and β have the same extension, then φ and φ[β/α] have the same extension.

Logic is introduced from a linguistic perspective in volume 1, although an attempt has been made to keep things interesting for readers who just want to learn logic (perhaps with the exception of those with a purely mathematical. Intensional logics are systems that distinguish an expression’s intension (roughly, its sense or meaning) from its extension (reference, denotation).

The purpose of bringing intensions into logic is to explain the logical behaviour of so-called intensional expressions.

It covers symbolization, proofs, counterexamples, and truth trees. These topics are presented in graded steps, beginning with the symbolization of categorical propositions and Cited by: 3.

Intensional logic is an approach to predicate logic that extends first-order logic, which has quantifiers that range over the individuals of a universe (), by additional quantifiers that range over terms that may have such individuals as their value ().The distinction between intensional and extensional entities is parallel to the distinction between sense and reference.

“Logic is terrific. We have needed a text with this approach [more effective in bridging formal to informal logic and logic to real-life situations] for a long time.” – William S.

Jamison, University of Alaska Anchorage “The well-chosen and relevant examples are a major selling point. This book looks terrific.”.

Intensional logic is the technical study of such intensional phenomena in human reasoning as modality, knowledge, or flow of time.

These all require a richer semantic picture than standard truth values in one static environment/5. Philosophical Logic is a clear and concise critical survey of nonclassical logics of philosophical interest written by one of the world's leading authorities on the subject.

After giving an overview of classical logic, John Burgess introduces five central branches of nonclassical logic (temporal, modal, conditional, relevantistic, and intuitionistic), focusing on the sometimes problematic /5(8).

Intensional logic has emerged, since the ' s, as a powerful theoretical and practical tool in such diverse disciplines as computer science, artificial intelligence, linguistics, philosophy and even the foundations of mathematics. The present volume is a collection of carefully chosen papers.

They include reflections on the nature of logic and its relevance for philosophy today, and explore in depth developments in informal logic and the relation of informal to symbolic logic, mathematical metatheory and the limiting metatheorems, modal logic, many-valued logic, relevance and paraconsistent logic, free logics, extensional v.

The semantics for Lω requires a new semantic method, one which harks back to the work of Boole, Peirce, and Schroder. This algebraic semantic method does not appeal to possible worlds even as a heuristic.

The heuristic that is used is simply that of properties, relations, and propositions, taken at face value, and fundamental logical. This book tackles the issues that arise in connection with intensional logic-- a formal system for representing and explaining the apparent failures of certain important principles of inference such as the substitution of identicals and existential generalization -- and intentional states --mental states such as beliefs, hopes, and desires that.

The present volume is a collection of carefully chosen papers, giving the reader a taste of the frontline state of research in intensional logics today. Most papers are representative of new ideas and/or new research themes.

The collection would benefit the researcher as well as the student. This book is a most welcome addition to our series. Intension and extension, in logic, correlative words that indicate the reference of a term or concept: “intension” indicates the internal content of a term or concept that constitutes its formal definition; and “extension” indicates its range of applicability by naming the particular objects that it denotes.

Although the two volumes of Logic, Language, and Meaning can be used independently of one another, together they provide a comprehensive overview of modern logic as it is used as a tool in the analysis of natural language. Both volumes provide exercises and their solutions. Volume 2, Intensional logic and Logical Grammar, begins with an introduction to the various/5.

Bealer’s Intensional Logic. In logic and mathematics, an intensional definition gives the meaning of a term by specifying necessary and sufficient conditions for when the term should be used.

In the case of nouns, this is equivalent to specifying the properties that an object needs to have in order to be counted as a referent of the term. For example, an intensional definition of the word "bachelor" is "unmarried man".

Gamut is published by University of Chicago Press. In philosophical logic, the intensional fallacy is committed when one makes an illicit use of Leibniz's law in an argument. Leibniz's law states that, if one object has a certain property, while another object does not have the same property, the two objects cannot be identical.
