From Author's Prefaces to Previous Editions - From the original edition (1936)
ix - math seems to laymen a dead science - entirely erroneous view, intense manifold development, expanding in all possible directions, hight width depth, hight: on soil of old theories new problems and results, width: other branches, phenomena, new theories, depth: foundations become more firmly established, mehtods perfect, principles stabilized - my intention is giving an idea of growth in depth - acquaint reader with most important concepts of independent discipline of mathematical logic, existing barely a century, permeating whole of mathematics - tried to present basic principles enployed in construction of theories, forming another discipline: methodology of mathematics, and how to use them in practice
not easy carry plan within small book without presupposing reader specialized mathematical knowledge or training in argumentation of an abstract character - care avoiding scientific inexactitudes, use language deviating as lttle as possible from language of everyday life, had to give up special logical symbolism - idea of systematic treatment had to be abandoned - shorten abundance of questions - in contemorary science all views are presented - methods of solution chosen simple insofar as possible, not personal choice - not in illusion having succeeded in overcoming all of this
From the first American edition (1941)
present book partially modified and extended edition of 1936 - present to layman clear idea of modern logic - originally to stabilize foundations of mathematics, in present phase wider aims: to relate to whole of human knowledge - one goal is to perfect and sharpen deductive method ... - ... present edition discusses all former skipped basic themes, logical symbolism added - passages and sections marked with * asterisks at beginning and end contain more difficult material ...

Introduction to Logic - First Part - Elements of Logic - Deductive Method
I - On the Use of Variables - 1 Constants and variables
p3 - every scientific theory is system of sentences accepted as true, called laws or asserted statements, accompanied by arguments or proofs, and such statements are called theorems (Ch VI) - among terms and symbols occuring in theorems we distinguish between constants and variables - in arithmetic called "number" as 0, 1, or sum + etc., meaning remains unchanged - in highschool often word "algebra" instead of arithmetic used, in higher math reserved for algebraic equations - in this book number means real number without imaginary or complex ones - for variables choose lower-case letters like a, b, c, ..., x, y, z -
p4 - opposed to constants they don't possess meaning by themselves - question: does 0 have such and such a property? answer affirmative or negative possible, may be true or false, but meaningful - question: is zero an integer? can't be answered meaningful - we can't attribute independent meaning to variables, be careful, in some books not correct
2 - Expressions containing variables — sentential and designatory functions
variables no meaning by themselves - phrases like x is an integer are not sentences, although they are gramatically, don't express assertions, can't be confirmed or refuted -
p5 - if replace x with 1 result is true sentence, by 1/2 false - these expressions called sentential function, but mathematicians are reluctant to do so, using term "function" in different sense, instead the word condition is employed - sentential functions, also called sentences if no danger of misunderstanding, or formulas, are composed entirely of mathematical symbols, not everyday words: x + y = 5 ...

4 - Universal and existential quantifiers; free and bound variables
p9 - phrases like for any x, y,... and there are x, y,... such that are called quantifiers, former a universal, latter an existential quantifier - ...
words like "every, all, a certain, some" exhibit a very close connection with quantifiers - connection becomes obvious observing expressions like all men are mortal or some men are wise have about the same meaning as sentences which are formulated with the help of quantifiers, according to the following schemes: for any x, if x is a man, then x is mortal and there is an x, such that x is both a man and wise

1 The idea of logic
p1 - argument as reason
1.1 Arguments and argument patterns - p2 (1) All humans are mortal. (2) Socrates is a human. (3) ∴ Socrates is mortal. (1,2) argument is premise-comclusion form - (1) (2) premises, (3) conclusion - premises are reasons given to support conclusion - if believe 1 and 2 then reason to believe 3 - premises and conclusion are steps of argument - 2 basic rules for writing arguments in premise-conclusion form: 1st: Every step is a declarative sentence (true or false) - not declarative: a. Is a human. not grammatically correct, no subject - b. Make tacos! imperative, command - c. Is it raining? question d. I like corn. tricky, can be read as declarative or optative (expression of wish) - 2nd: Premises come first, conclusions come last - first at least one premise, then conclusion (exceptions not covered here) -
p3 - (3) statred with symbol read 'hence' or 'therefore', signals a conclusion - (1, 2) after (3) indicate logical support, step (3) is supported by step (1) and (2)
compare earlier argument with this one: (4) All cats are mammals. (5) Whiskers is a cat. (6) ∴ Whiskers is a mammal. arguments look similar - replace nouns and names with algebra letters: (7) All As are Bs. (8) x is a A. (9) ∴ x is a B. we say to similar arguments of this kind: they have the same logical form or pattern - other examples: (10) If Obama is President then Biden is VP. (11) Obama is President. (12) ∴ Biden is VP.
(10′) If it’s raining then the sidewalks will be slippery. (11′) It’s raining. (12′) ∴ The sidewalks will be slippery.
(10′′) If p then q. (11′′) p (12′′) ∴ q
(The is a ‘prime’, so for example (10′) is ‘ten-prime’ and (11′′) is ‘eleven double-prime’.) - only knowing about the argument's form or pattern whithout knowing the content, we can see that premises are related to the conclusion in the same way as they are in other arguments with same patterns - move from natural languages arguments to their patterns is like moving from drawing shapes to geometry - study of argument-patterns goes by two names: formal logic — because it studies logical form — and mathematical logic — because it’s studied mathematically - can be good at logic without knowing anything about math, therefore author wrote pamphlet so that anyone can use it -

generic - generisch, allgemein, gattungsmäßig, gewöhnlich, spezifisch - p3
mammal - Säugetier, Säuger
pamphlet - Pamphlet, Broschüre, Heftchen, Flugschrift, Flugblatt, Streitschrift, Prospekt, Aufklärungsschrift - p2

Preface to 2nd edition
Ch 1 - Elementary Predicate Logic - Introduction
p1 - Elementary first-order predicate logic is child of many parents, at least 3 - simplest, most powerful and applicable branch of modern logic -
1st group traditional logicians - central aim was to schematise valid arguments: string of sentences called premises, followed by 'therefore', followed by single sentence called conclusion - argument valid if premises entail conclusion, means if premises true then conclusion - typical scheme: 1. a is more X than b. b is more X than c. Therefore a is more X than c. substituting for example planets, or mixed: 2. a) sun > earth. earth > moon. therefore sun > moon.
b) sun brighter than fire. fire brighter than earth. therefore sun brighter than earth.
arguments like (2) called instances of schema (1) - traditional logicians collect schemes like (1 - Aristoteles gives 24 schemes (19 mentioned by himself), these arguments are called formal logic - today formal vs informal, mathematical correct vs incorrect - watershed between classical and modern logic 1847, when George Boole (2.11.1815 Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England - 8.12.1864 Ballintemple, Cork, Ireland) published calculus with infinitely valid argument schemas of arbitrarily high complexity - today Boole's calculus known as propositional logic - other researchers Augustus De Morgan 1806-1871 and C.S. Peirce 1839-1914 - examples of people i enemies to people j at time k, and other people overdrawing their bank accounts
p2 - 2nd group called Proof Theorists - among them Gottlob Frege (1848-1925), Hilbert, Russell, Herbrand, Gentzen - aim to systematise mathematical reasoning, all assumtions made explicit, all steps rigorous - ... - devised notation and proof theory of first-order logic, earliest calculus Ferge's "Begriffschrift" 1879, also first work discussing quantifiers -
3rd group called Model Theorists - aim study mathematical structures ... - Schröder, Löwenheim, Skolem, Langford, Gödel, Tarski, notion of first-order property already 1895 by Schröder - ...
other groups ...
