Teach Yourself Logic: A Study Guide, and other book notes Most philosophy departments, and many maths departments too, teach little or no serious logic, despite the centrality of the subject. Many students will therefore need to teach themselves, either solo or by organizing study groups. But what to read? Students need annotated reading lists for self-study, giving advice about the available texts. The Teach Yourself Logic Study Guide, linked below, aims to provide the needed advice by suggesting some stand-out books on various areas of mathematical logic. The main Guide and its Appendix are in PDF form, designed for on-screen reading. Teach Yourself Logic 2105: A Study Guide (PDF, iv + 94 pp.) If the Guide’s length makes it sound daunting, there are also some supplementary webpages which might help ease your way in: About the Guide Is the Guide for you? And here are some additional webpages: It goes without saying, of course, that all constructive comments and suggestions continue to be most warmly welcomed.

Blog We’ve been working hard over the past four months trying to reimagine Codecademy and we couldn’t be happier to finally unveil it to the world. We have redefined every component under our brand, from a single button on our dashboard to our email template, business cards, slides and even apparel. We had been discussing a design refresh for a while, but somehow it always ended up being pushed to the side. Finally, in October last year, after completing a user segmentation project that brought to live the main user archetypes of Codecademy.com, it quickly became apparent that if we wanted to grow and mature as a brand, we required a thorough redesign of our entire product. Why a redesign? Reason #1 – Start fresh First, there was the obvious problem of design incoherence and variation. A random sampling of pages within our old web ecosystem, showcasing some visual design inconsistency. Reason #2 – Brand matureness Our new look Phase 1 Various early directions for our new logo. Our new color palette.

Learning English Mooc to be launched on FutureLearn The British Council is to offer its first free online course for learning English on the UK massive open online course platform FutureLearn. It is the first course to be delivered by one of the “cultural partners” of the Open University-owned Mooc provider, rather than by a university. Other such partners include the British Library and the British Museum. The course, which will begin this autumn, is aimed at non-native speakers with intermediate levels of English language proficiency, and will include learning about British culture and traditions to enable learners to gain a better understanding of life in the UK. It is not designed to link directly with any UK government-recognised Secure English Language Test, however the British Council said it hoped that participants on the course would “feel confident to then explore options towards taking a SELT”. chris.parr@tsleducation.com Click to rate 1 star out of 52 stars out of 53 stars out of 54 stars out of 55 stars out of 5 0 out of 5 stars

By the end of the Renaissance, however, some of the greatest works in the English language—from Shakespeare’s dramas to Thomas More’s Utopia—had been written. In this course, we will read and examine these works, situating them within their socio-historical and literary contexts, while attempting to determine how the art of English language and letters came into its own during this dynamic period. We will begin with an overview of European history during the centuries leading up to the Renaissance in order to acquaint ourselves with the profound cultural and social changes brought about by the Italian Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, nationalism/colonialism, and the growing power of the middle class. √ Have access to a computer.
