  2. Aladdin M. Yaqub (2014). An Introduction to Metalogic. Broadview Press.
    An Introduction to Metalogic is a uniquely accessible introduction to the metatheory of first-order predicate logic. No background knowledge of logic is presupposed, as the book is entirely self-contained and clearly defines all of the technical terms it employs. Yaqub begins with an introduction to predicate logic, and ends with detailed outlines of the proofs of the incompleteness, undecidability, and indefinability theorems. Many other topics are covered: expressive completeness, the basics of set theory, infinite cardinalities, Cantor's Theorems, the Soundness and (...)

  3. Aladdin M. Yaqub (2013). An Introduction to Logical Theory. Broadview Press.
    This book reclaims logic as a branch of philosophy, offering a self-contained and complete introduction to the three traditional systems of classical logic (term, sentence, and predicate logic) and the philosophical issues that surround those systems. The exposition is lucid, clear, and engaging. Practical methods are favored over the traditional, and creative approaches over the merely mechanical. The author's guiding principle is to introduce classical logic in an intellectually honest way, and not to shy away from difficulties and controversies where (...)

  7. Aladdin M. Yaqub (2010). Al-Ġazālī's Philosophers on the Divine Unity. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 20 (2):281-306.
    The medieval Islamic philosophers held a certain conception of the divine unity that assumes the necessary existent to be both one and simple. The oneness of the necessary existent meant that it is the only necessary existent and its simplicity meant that it admits no composition whatsoever az presents, with elaboration, an exposition of the philosophers' conception of the divine unity, several arguments for its two components (i.e., oneness and simplicity), and his critique of these arguments. In this paper I (...)

  8. Aladdin M. Yaqub (2008). Two Types of Deflationism. Synthese 165 (1):77 - 106.
    It is a fundamental intuition about truth that the conditions under which a sentence is true are given by what the sentence asserts. My aim in this paper is to show that this intuition captures the concept of truth completely and correctly. This is conceptual deflationism, for it does not go beyond what is asserted by a sentence in order to define the truth status of that sentence. This paper, hence, is a defense of deflationism as a conceptual account of (...)

  9. Aladdin M. Yaqub (1993). The Liar Speaks the Truth: A Defense of the Revision Theory of Truth. OUP USA.
    In this book Yaqub describes a simple conception of truth and shows that it yields a semantical theory that accommodates the whole range of our seemingly conflicting intuitions about truth. This conception takes the Tarskian biconditionals (such as "The sentence `Johannes loved Clara' is true if and only if Johannes loved Clara") as correctly and completely defining the notion of truth. The semantical theory, which is called the revision theory, that emerges from this conception paints a metaphysical picture of truth (...)
