The course syllabus is here. The current version of the textbook is here. If you find errors, please send me some email pointing them out!

If you are looking for a good textbook to supplement what we are doing, to expand on what we are doing, or just to get another voice, you might consider Hausman, et al. (2010) Logic and Philosophy, Jeffrey (2006) Formal Logic, or for a much more advanced text, Boolos et al. (2007) Computability and Logic.
Lecture slides, homework assignments, practice problem sets, and other supplementary materials will be linked in pdf format below, as we come to them over the course of the semester.
