Hi Yoandy,

I do not think we have special kind of logic in SW,
so if we define predicate
P1(x) = round_shape(x) and not circle(x)
why do you think that
for_any x P1(x) implies ellipse(x)

there is a good book: http://www.sfu.ca/philosophy/swartz/definitions.htm
and "Logic. Wilfrid Hodges" is good too.
