Abstract

Drawing upon Martin-Löf's semantic framework for his constructive type theory, semantic values are assigned also to natural-deduction derivations, while observing the crucial distinction between (logical) consequence among propositions and inference among judgements. Derivations in Gentzen's (1934-5) format with derivable formulae dependent upon open assumptions, stand, it is suggested, for proof-objects (of propositions), whereas derivations in Gentzen's (1936) sequential format are (blue-prints for) proof-acts.
