The chapter ends with a little model theory — compactness, the LS theorems, interpretations between theorems — all rather briskly done, and there is an application to the construction of infinitesimals in non-standard analysis which is surely going to be too compressed for a first encounter with the ideas.

Carter Cheng rated it it was amazing Oct 27, The Best Books of Not very helpful ways to approach the certain problems. I adopted this text because of its detailed and rigorous treatment of the predicate calculus, detailed and optimal treatment of the incompleteness phenomena, standard notation as developed by the Berkeley school.

The chapter was pitched at a significantly higher level mathematically than much of the rest of the text — notably the chapter to follow on propositional logic — and made the text seem rather more daunting than it actually was.
