- The position of varieties in common sense: Kripke's idea of fact, the evolution and function of the propositions as kinds idea and its use in logical frameworks.

- The function of varieties in computation: extensions of sort theories that can higher version facts checkers and programming languages are given.

The first a part of the publication is old, but whilst, locations old platforms (like Russell's RTT) within the sleek environment. the second one half offers with glossy sort concept because it built because the Nineteen Forties, and with the position of propositions as kinds (or proofs as terms), yet while, areas one other historic process (the facts checker Automath) within the sleek environment. The 3rd half makes use of this bridging within the first elements among old and glossy platforms to suggest new structures that convey extra benefits jointly. This ebook has a lot to provide to mathematicians, logicians and to computing device scientists as a rule. it is going to have huge impression for a few years to come.' - Henk Barendregt
