Questions on basic notions in complexity theory tended to have good answers and some more advanced theorems were stated without proof (usually wisely). Theoretical questions that do not have a practical angle were usually not answered. There is nothing on semantics or logic; however, since the book's title is Algorithms and Theory of Computation Handbook it is not claiming to cover those areas…
