What to do before the module starts

Please buy a new copy of Barwise & Etchemendy: Language, Proof and Logic (CSLI publications, Stanford, £42). The book comes with bundled software and a registration code that you will need in order to complete this course. Please note: you need a *new* copy of the book (as you need a registration code to submit exercises).

Read sections 1.1-1.4 and 2.1-2.5 of the text over the Christmas vacation. Experiment with the Tarski's World program that comes with the book.
