To the left you can find titles and syllabi for courses and
seminars Franks has taught or is planning to teach. His teaching
emphasis is modern formal logic. This covers a wide range of
topics at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate
level. He also routinely teaches beginning logic classes as well
as more advanced things like the proof theory of arithmetic
and recursion theory. In a less routine way, Franks teaches other
philosophical topics. When he does, he emphasizes a historical,
interpretative approach to significant philosophical texts.
His seminar topics coincide with his research interests.
