I currently hold three-year and magistral Logic teachings. The goal of the three-year Logic course is to provide a knowledge of the logic of propositions and predicates. The presentation of the different systems is in natural derivation style. After providing some historical elements, we move on to introduce the language and derivation procedures. Particular importance is given to the techniques of discovery of the tests. The subject of the magistral logic course is the syntactic and semantic analysis of natural language. Currently, some modern and contemporary theories are proposed that propose logical and linguistic analyzes; in particular those Ajdukiewicz, Lambek, Montague.
