This paper begins with recent work by Kuan, MacQueen, and Findler, which shows how standard type systems, such as the simply typed lambda calculus, can be viewed as abstract reduction systems operating on terms. The central idea is to think of the process of typing a term as the computation of an abstract value for that term. The standard metatheoretic(More)
This paper shows how a recently developed view of typing as small-step abstract reduction, due to Kuan, MacQueen, and Findler, can be used to recast the development of simple type theory from a rewriting perspective. We show how standard meta-theoretic results can be proved in a completely new way, using the rewriting view of simple typing. These(More)
