For the usual motivation for separating off propositional logic and giving it an extended treatment at the beginning of a book at this level is that this enables us to introduce and contrast the key ideas of semantic entailment and of provability in a formal deductive system, and then explain strategies for soundness and completeness proofs, all in a helpfully simple and uncluttered initial framework.

Material is presented on computer science issues such as computational complexity and database queries, with additional coverage of introductory material such as sets. Set up a giveaway. Read more Read less.

We also get an exploration which can be postponed of the idea of proofs by induction and the Recursion Theorem, and based on these we get proper proofs of unique readability and the uniqueness of the extension of a valuation of atoms to a valuation of a set of sentences containing them perhaps not the most inviting things for a beginner to be pausing long over.
