For top-down approach I believe we can choose between lambda calculus and mathematical logic, although those two should be the same, as they say. Recently (about last half a century) a new kid came in the town in a form of category theory, but it is complicated and pretty much a work in a progress (see also

If you want investigate lambda calculus, continue here, after chrunching untyped lambda calculus and church encoding.

If you want to investigate logic, you can try propositional logic for a start, then move to first order logic, then to higher order logic. Also see sequent calculus.

Ask if something is blurry, maybe someone can help.
Dream big. The bigger the dream is, the more beautiful place the world becomes.
