CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This text is designed for those instructors who desire a comprehensive
introduction to formal logic that is both rigorous and accessible to students
encountering the subject for the first time. Numerous, carefully crafted
exercise sets accompanied by clear, crisp exposition give students a firm grasp
of basic concepts and take the student from sentential logic through
first-order predicate logic, the theory of descriptions, and identity. As the
title suggests, this is a book devoted not merely to logic; students will
encounter an extraordinary amount of philosophy as well. Upon completing the
first two parts of the text, a student will be well prepared for advanced
courses in analytic philosophy. The last part deals with supplemental
matters-informal fallacies, modal logic, and inductive logic, among others.
