  1. La Lógica Matemática: Una Disciplina En Busca de Encuadre.José Ferreirós - 2010 - Theoria : An International Journal for Theory, History and Fundations of Science 25 (3):279-299.
    We offer an analysis of the disciplinary transformations underwent by mathematical or symbolic logic since its emergence in the late 19 th century. Examined are its origins as a hybrid of philosophy and mathematics, the maturity and institutionalisation attained under the label “logic and foundations,” a second wave of institutionalisation in the Postwar period, and the institutional developments since 1975 in connection with computer science and with the study of language and informatics. Although some “internal history” is discussed, the main (...)

  • Completeness: From Gödel to Henkin.Maria Manzano & Enrique Alonso - 2014 - History and Philosophy of Logic 35 (1):1-26.
    This paper focuses on the evolution of the notion of completeness in contemporary logic. We discuss the differences between the notions of completeness of a theory, the completeness of a calculus, and the completeness of a logic in the light of Gödel's and Tarski's crucial contributions.We place special emphasis on understanding the differences in how these concepts were used then and now, as well as on the role they play in logic. Nevertheless, we can still observe a certain ambiguity in (...)

  • Diagonalisation and Church's Thesis: Kleene's Homework.Enrique Alonso & Maria Manzano - 2005 - History and Philosophy of Logic 26 (2):93-113.
    In this paper we will discuss the active part played by certain diagonal arguments in the genesis of computability theory. 1?In some cases it is enough to assume the enumerability of Y while in others the effective enumerability is a substantial demand. These enigmatical words by Kleene were our point of departure: When Church proposed this thesis, I sat down to disprove it by diagonalizing out of the class of the ??definable functions. But, quickly realizing that the diagonalization cannot be (...)

  • Visions of Henkin.María Manzano & Enrique Alonso - 2015 - Synthese 192 (7):2123-2138.
    Leon Henkin (1921–2006) was not only an extraordinary logician, but also an excellent teacher, a dedicated professor and an exceptional person. The first two sections of this paper are biographical, discussing both his personal and academic life. In the last section we present three aspects of Henkin’s work. First we comment part of his work fruit of his emphasis on teaching. In a personal communication he affirms that On mathematical induction, published in 1969, was the favourite among his articles with (...)
