The methods of logic are essential to an understanding of philosophy and are crucial in the study of mathematics, computing, linguistics and many other subjects. Introducing the major concepts and techniques involved in the study of logic, this authoritative book explores both formal and philosophical logic, and the ways in which we can achieve good reasoning. Individual chapters include:* Propositions and Arguments

* Truth Tables

* Trees

* Conditionality

* Natural Deduction

* Predicates, Names and Quantifiers

* Definite Descriptions.This exceptionally clear introduction to the subject is ideally suited to students taking introductory courses in logic.


“The text is wonderfully clear and avoids the tedium of many introductory logic texts. The examples, exercises, and suggestions for further reading are all good. This is the only introductory text I know of that introduces students to some of the philosophical problems logic pertains to and intersects with. It is the type of book I would like to use for an introductory course and recommend it enthusiastically.” Michael Hallett, Philosophy Department, McGill University.
