You should add in the list of analysis the two books by Richard Courant: 1) Introduction to Calculus and Analysis. 2) Differential and Integral Calculus. What has Poincare got to do with philosophy? Edited by hyena in petticoat on Mar 24, 2008 - 3:51 AM. Reason: Capitalization. |

Thanks, Timothy. But the list I posted had some entries that were ones that I just wanted to check out (I wanted other people's opinions on those items) so those entries might not deserve to be in the list. I was pretty informal. And I've made some improvements on the list since I last posted. I think this list can be greatly improved, especially by removing so many overlapping texts on subjects such as linear algebra. Also, another poster pointed out that Bridges's book 'Constructive Analysis' is the revised version of Bishop's book. And since you're including historical texts, I would add Frege's Grundlagen, Hilbert and Ackermann's Grundlagen, and Whitehead and Russell's Principia Mathematica, among many others. I would make the historical text section a separate section from the general reading section. Edited by MoeBlee on May 2, 2006 - 1:55 PM |

Oops, I meant Hilbert and Bernays. Anyway, the list needs a lot of work. It's got good books in it, but it needs to be fleshed out and the classifications need to be straightened out. (Originally, I meant for non text-books, or books that you read rather than "work through", to be in separate categories from textbooks and books you work through.) |

MoeBlee, Thanks again for the help. If you consider that there are far too many overlapping texts on certain topic, or wish to simpy suggest the removal of a book in the list, please let me know which ones, for my wide ignorance on those matters doesn't allow me to do it myself. Regarding the historical texts section, it's now separated from General. Principia was added before your post. I just added Hilbert and Bernay Grundlagen, as well as Frege's. Did you noticed Wittgenstein's "Tractatus" on it also? Regards EDIT: BM, thanks for the suggestions. Edited by Timothy on May 5, 2006 - 11:26 AM |

Because the list is "biased" towards classical logic, I would like to suggest some non-classical additions to it: Anderson and Belnap Entailment: The Logic of Relevance and Necessity JC Beall and Bas van Fraassen: Possibilities and Paradox JC Beall and Greg Restall: Logical Pluralism Brady, Ross: Universal Logic Bremer, Manuel Eugen: Introduction to Paraconsistent Logic Edwin, Mares Relevant Logic: A Philosophical Interpretation Lambert, Karel: Free Logic: Selected Essays Lewis, David: Counterfactuals Mortensen, Chris: Inconsistent Mathematics Priest, Graham: In Contradiction ----- Beyond the Limits of Thought ----- Towards Non-Being ----- Doubt Truth to Be a Liar ----- Introduction to Non-Classical Logic Read, Stephen: Relevant Logic Restall, Greg: An Introduction to Substructural Logics Zimmermann: Fuzzy Set Theory and its Applications |

Updates: Added several non-classical logic texts, as well as specific web resources. A comprehensive revision ought to take place anytime soon. |

A few I like that aren't there are: First Order Modal Logic by Fitting and Mendelson (does not cover intensional objects, but exposition of extensional FOML is great and it has a lot on predicate abstraction, which other books seem to ignore) Intro to Godel's Theorems by Peter Smith (beautifully written book, IMO. covers Godel's theorems thoroughly and clearly. also has basic intro to computability, general recursive functions, church-turing thesis, etc. Smith should expand on his text to cover all of the material in the Boolos, Burgess, & Jeffrey. such a book would certainly become the new standard.) Basic Set Theory by Derek Goldrei (best book for in depth intro to set theory that i've seen. designed with self-study in mind, so many exercises with solutions worked out. several exercises and sections assume familiarity with real analysis, but you can skip them if you must without becoming lost. the author makes sure that everything the reader needs to proceed is shown in the text. it's very annoying when you're reading a technical book and the author gives exercises without solutions that are essential for what follows.)

Does anyone know the Hinman text Fundamentals of Mathematical Logic? |
