Logic and its Application to Social Change: Our Work in Retrospect and Prospect

Show Summary Details

Preview

The logic of rules that has emerged from this project has been set forth and shown at work in the applications from which some of its chief features have derived. This chapter addresses the following questions: What has been accomplished? What are the prospects for future work, at once on the logic and on its applications? Though the two subjects, in retrospect and equally in prospect, go hand in hand, the first is discussed with an emphasis on the logic and the second with emphasis on the applications.

Keywords: logic; rules; applications
