ISBN 978-80-210-7973-1, Brno: Masarykova univerzita (Munipress).

- back-cover info: The book "Transparent Intensional Logic as Characteristica Universalis and Calculus Ratiocinator"
provides the foundations of Transparent Intensional Logic (TIL) which was developed by the logician and philosopher Pavel Tichý in his New Zealand exile. The book
focuses on TIL as a logic sui generis, which lead to the expansion of its former boundaries and many quite new findings are presented.
The main aim of the book is to show that TIL is not only a powerful characteristica universalis, but also a noteworthy calculus ratiocinator.

- the book has 396 pages (the manuscript having more than 1 million of characters, so it is in fact 590 standard pages), it contains over 130 formal definitions and nearly 200 logical analyses of natural language expressions
- back-cover info: The book investigates various logical and semantical problems related to proper names and descriptions. Especially the puzzles connected with a=b statements have been already studied by Frege and Russell. Their theories and the alternative propsals are still among the most discussed topics within the current analytical philosophy of language. Proposed solutions to the puzzles are framed within Tichý's transparent intensional logic and utilize his semantic theory
