  1. Could There be a "Meta-Logic"? by Renegade Jew in Logic and Philosophy of Math

I've only taken a couple college courses in philosophy and attempted to read thr...

I plan on going to grad school for a philosophy MA once I finish my degrees. My majors only require up to MATH 101. I am pretty sure th...
