It offers them the possibility of taking qualifying examinations in more than one of these subjects; indeed, they must do so.
Introduction to Logic, Criticial Reasoning and Argumentation
Dissertations in this program may be interdisciplinary in character; however, they may also lie entirely within just one of these fields. The program is administered by the Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science, an interdepartmental agency which cooperates closely with the Department of Mathematics, the Department of Philosophy, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.
The Group Office is located in Evans Hall. Its library is one of the largest in the country and also maintains cooperative programs with other major California research libraries.

The campus is located at the foot of the Berkeley hills, across the bay from San Francisco, with a view of the Golden Gate. The climate is mild year-round. The contrast between matters of fact and relations between meanings that was relied on in the characterization has been challenged, together with the very notion of meaning. Even if both are accepted, there remains a considerable tension between a wider and a narrower conception of logic. According to the wider interpretation, all truths depending only on meanings belong to logic. According to the narrower conception, logical truths obtain or hold in virtue of certain specific terms, often called logical constants.
Whether they can be given an intrinsic characterization or whether they can be specified only by enumeration is a moot point. The dummy letter x is here called a bound individual variable. Its values are supposed to be members of some fixed class of entities, called individuals, a class that is variously known as the universe of discourse, the universe presupposed in an interpretation, or the domain of individuals. The forms that the study of these logical constants take are described in greater detail in the article logic, in which the different kinds of logical notation are also explained.

Here, only a delineation of the field of logic is given. When the terms in 1 alone are studied, the field is called propositional logic. When 1 , 2 , and 4 are considered, the field is the central area of logic that is variously known as first-order logic, quantification theory, lower predicate calculus , lower functional calculus, or elementary logic.
What is Logic?
Borderline cases between logical and nonlogical constants are the following among others : 1 Higher order quantification, which means quantification not over the individuals belonging to a given universe of discourse, as in first-order logic, but also over sets of individuals and sets of n -tuples of individuals. Alternatively, the properties and relations that specify these sets may be quantified over.
This gives rise to second-order logic. The process can be repeated.
Quantification over sets of such sets or of n -tuples of such sets or over properties and relations of such sets as are considered in second-order logic gives rise to third-order logic; and all logics of finite order form together the simple theory of finite types. This narrower sense of logic is related to the influential idea of logical form. In any given sentence, all of the nonlogical terms may be replaced by variables of the appropriate type, keeping only the logical constants intact.
The result is a formula exhibiting the logical form of the sentence. If the formula results in a true sentence for any substitution of interpreted terms of the appropriate logical type for the variables, the formula and the sentence are said to be logically true in the narrower sense of the expression.
