Reasoning, logic and computation

Philosophia Mathematica 3 (1):31-51 (1995)
The idea that logic and reasoning are somehow related goes back to antiquity. It clearly underlies much of the work in logic, as witnessed by the development of computability, and formal and mechanical deductive systems, for example. On the other hand, a platitude is that logic is the study of correct reasoning; and reasoning is cognitive if anything Is. Thus, the relationship between logic, computation, and correct reasoning makes an interesting and historically central case study for mechanism. The purpose of this article is to begin the articulation of this relationship, pointing out its sources and its limitations.
