I’m a professor of philosophy at the University of Calgary, in Canada. I’m working on an open textbook for mathematical logic geared at a non-mathematical audience (mainly, philosophy students). It lives at http://openlogicproject.org/. I’m also in the process of adapting an existing open introductory logic text for our first logic class, together with my grad student Aaron Thomas-Bolduc.

I’ve also been active in OER more generally, serving on my University’s OER Working Group and the Alberta OER Community of Practice.

That’s great! Are you referring to forall x or is there a different existing OER logic textbook for you to use as a starting point?

@stevefoerster yes, the Cambridge version of forall x is our starting point. We’ll document the process on openlogicproject.org see eg http://openlogicproject.org/2016/10/18/choosing-an-open-introductory-logic-text/

@rzach Oh, that’s neat. Many thanks for pointing me towards that, as understanding the thought processes of others is very helpful to us.
