The logic programming paradigm in its purely logical form can be defined in arbitrary institutions. This liberation of the logic programming ideal from its conventional framework (based upon the Horn sub-institution of REL1, the single sorted variant of relational logic) gives the opportunity of developing the logic programming paradigm over various structures. From a computational angle this corresponds to combinations between logic programming and other computing paradigms, such as functional programming, object orientation, concurrency, etc.
