This development has largely been fueled by an increasing dissatisfaction to what has earlier been taken to be a straightforward outcome of a€˜logical pluralisma€™ or a€˜methodological diversitya€™. These phrases appear to re ect the everyday chaos of our academic pursuits rather than any genuine attempt to clarify the general principles underlying the miscellaneous ways in which logic appears to us.

This is a necessary follow-up to the intensive research into the intricacies of logical systems and methodologies performed over the recent years. The present book suggests one such peculiar but very unrestrained meth- ological perspective over the eld of logic and its applications in mathematics, language or computation: games. An allegory for opposition, cooperation and coordination, games are also concrete objects of formal study.... simply have (r\yE(y))* = (\~\xE(x))* . So, we deal with a game of the form A a€” Ar A, for which the ordinary copy-cat strategy is successful. n ... Example: if v = 1000 J_, we have v = 10001, v = 10 and v = 001.
