Robert Ian Goldblatt (born 1949) is a mathematical logician at the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand, and a member of the Centre for Logic, Language and Computation. His academic genealogy can be traced back to Leibniz. One of his most popular books is Logics of time and computation. He has also written a graduate level textbook on hyperreal numbers which is an introduction to nonstandard analysis.

- Benjamin C. Pierce recommends it as an "excellent beginner book", praising it for the use of simple set-theoretic examples and motivating intuitions, but noted that it "is sometimes criticized by category theorists for being misleading on some aspects of the subject, and for presenting long and difficult proofs where simple ones are available."
