Abstract:

This article presents three extracts from the introductory course in mathematical logic that Godel gave at the University of Notre Dame in 1939. The lectures include a few digressions, which give insight into Godel's views on logic prior to his philosophical papers of the 1940s. The first extract is Godel's first lecture. It gives the flavour of Godel's leisurely style in this course. It also includes a curious definition of logic and a discussion of implication in logic and natural language. The second extract is a discussion on undecidability and on Leibniz. The third extract concerns the paradoxes and Russell's theory of types.
