The result of the European Summer Meeting of the Association for Symbolic Logic, this volume gives an overview of the latest developments in most of the major fields of logic being actively pursued today. As well as selected papers, the two panel discussions are also included, on ``Trends in Logic'' and ``The Teaching of Logic''.
