The Significance of the Curry-Howard Isomorphism

From the book Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics

  • Richard Zach


The Curry-Howard isomorphism is a proof-theoretic result that establishes a connection between derivations in natural deduction and terms in typed lambda calculus. It is an important proof-theoretic result, but also underlies the development of type systems for programming languages. This fact suggests a potential importance of the result for a philosophy of code.
