Tarski's World

Description: This program introduces students to the language of first-order logic, helping the student learn the meanings of the connectives and quantifiers and ultimately the symbolic language at the core of the modern logic. Tarski's World is a game that allows the student to build three-dimensional worlds and to describe them in first-order logic. In these constructed worlds, the student evaluates sentences; if the student is incorrect, the program provides a game that illuminates the source of the student's error. The disk and manual contain over a hundred exercises ranging from very basic to highly sophisticated. It can also be used in conjunction with the text Language of First-order Logic.

Requirements: PC running Windows 3.1 or above, or Apple Macintosh running System 7.0 or above.
