The role of metaphysical language in the study of philosophy and classical logic brings up some interesting questions. Is there a reality beyond the physical, beyond that which can be known to man by his senses and tools of measurement? Can an idea, a concept, or a belief inexpressible in human...

The grammar that determines whether a mathematical argument is or is not valid is mathematical logic. In principle, any series of mathematical statements can be written in a formal language, and an algorithm can apply the rules of logic to check that each statement follows from the...
