This is an introductory textbook in logic and critical thinking. The goal is to provide the reader with skills that will enable them to identify and evaluate arguments. It is intended for an introductory course that covers formal and informal logic. ( views) A Concise Introduction to Logic by Craig DeLancey - Open SUNY Textbooks, This book is a comprehensive introduction to formal logic.

Although it does not have an index, the table of contents is sufficient to provide the reader with an idea of where to find various topics. This book would be useful for a one-semester course in introductory logic, and should allow students to become comfortable with metatheory in later /5(8).

I took an Intro to Logic class at school, we used 'The Logic Book' (6th ed.) by Bergmann, Moor, and Nelson. Most of the learning was done out of the textbook; lectures were mainly geared towards asking questions and working through the tougher practice problems.

This book is a beautiful entry-point, a must, in the world of logic. This book now stands in my list of outstanding books on logic: 1. Tarski's "Introduction to Logic", a jewel, followed by P. Smith's superb entry-point "An introduction to Formal logic" and the lovely "Logic, a very short introduction" by Graham Priest 2.

A book that should be read by everyone in mathematics regardless of level is Wolfe's A Tour Through Mathematical Logic. It's simply a compulsory read, Introductory formal logic of mathematics. book couldn't put it down. It gives a broad overview of mathematical Introductory formal logic of mathematics.

book and set theory along with its history, and it is absolutely beautifully written. That's the best place for anyone to begin. Mathematical logic is a subfield of mathematics exploring the applications of formal logic to mathematics.

It bears close connections to metamathematics, the foundations of mathematics, and theoretical computer science. The unifying themes in mathematical logic include the study of the expressive power of formal systems and the deductive power of formal proof systems. According to Jim Nance texts Formal Logic is the science and art of reasoning well.

He starts with deductive reasoning and the standard syllogism. He clearly defines the differences of truth and validity. If you are interested in a well built, straight forward approach, check out his Introductory AND Intermediate Logic texts. This is an introductory textbook in logic and critical thinking.

The goal of thetextbook is to provide the reader with a set of tools and skills that will enablethem to identify and evaluate arguments. The book is intended for anintroductory course that covers both formal and informal logic. As such, it is nota formal logic textbook, but is closer to what one would find marketed as a 4/5(8).

I learned logic from Mendelson, but I've also seen Enderton used as an introductory text. I think that both books assume you have some passing familiarity with the very basics of formal logic, but you can find a lot of that material online or in.

This book, presented in two parts, offers a slow introduction to mathematical logic, and several basic concepts of model theory, such as first-order definability, types, symmetries, and elementary extensions.

Its first part, Logic Sets, and Numbers, shows how mathematical logic is used to develop the number structures of classical : Springer International Publishing.

You are reading this book. This is a logic book.:_: You are a logic student. This is not a terrible argument. Most people who read this book are logic students.

Yet, it is possible for someone besides a logic student to read this book. If your roommate picked up the book and thumbed through it, they would not immediately become a logic student. Buy An Introduction to Formal Logic by Smith, Peter (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders/5(14). This is Robert Herrmann's elementary book in mathematical logic that includes all basic material in the predicate and propositional calculus presented in a unique manner. Neither proof requires specialized mathematical procedures.

( views) forall x: An Introduction to Formal Logic by P.D. Magnus, Written for independent study and suitable for an introductory course in logic, this classic text combines a sound presentation of logic with effective pedagogy and illustrates the role of logic in many areas of humanistic and scientific thought.

Cohen and Nagel's elegant integration of the history of philosophy, natural science, and mathematics helps earn this work its distinguished 4/5(7). Introductory Logic - The Fundamentals of Thinking Well Every person should have a course in logic at some point.

It is important for children to be prepared to argue logically, defend their positions, and spot fallacies. The first edition of An Introduction to Formal Logic was published by Cambridge University Press in November (with a number of later corrected reprintings). This is an accessible quite slow-paced introductory textbook aimed at beginning philosophy students, based on the first year course for Cambridge philosophy students for many years.

I used this in an Introductory Formal Logic course (along with Pospesel's text on Predicate Logic), housed in the Philosophy department. I came from a Mathematics background, so I found most of the exercises very simple and at times boring, yet for the most part they were fun to complete, and there are a number of genuinely difficult problems /5.

Undergraduate students with no prior instruction in mathematical logic will benefit from this multi-part text. Part I offers an elementary but thorough overview of mathematical logic of 1st order. Part II introduces some of the newer ideas and the more profound results of logical research in the 20th century.

edition. 2 Hardegree, Symbolic Logic 1. WHAT IS LOGIC. Logic may be defined as the science of reasoning. However, this is not to suggest that logic is an empirical (i.e., experimental or observational) science like physics, biology, or psychology.

Rather, logic is a non-empirical science like Size: KB. It’s also a book that’s written in such a way that if you didn’t want to learn formal logic for the purpose of doing an exam in the subject—completing the exercises and the quizzes—but you wanted to get a really good sense of what it was like, you could read this book without having to learn all of the has other virtues, as well.

Formal Logic is an undergraduate text suitable for introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in symbolic logic. The book’s nine chapters offer thorough coverage of truth-functional and quantificational logic, as well as the basics of more advanced topics such.

Logic is more than a science, it’s a language, and if you’re going to use the language of logic, you need to know the grammar, which includes operators, identities, equivalences, and quantifiers for both sentential and quantifier logic.

And, if you’re studying the subject, exam tips can come in. this is a great book from a great time in my life.

taking 15 hours of philosophy courses and intro logic along with formal logic. this was the text for formal/symbolic. im real right brained at times but this was an awesome experience/5.

This book covers translation, formal semantics, and proof theory for both sentential logic and quantified logic. Each chapter contains practice exercises, and solutions to selected exercises appear in an appendix.

The book is designed to provide a semester’s worth of material for an introductory college course. Formal Logic is an undergraduate text suitable for introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in symbolic logic.

The book’s nine chapters offer thorough coverage of truth-functional and quantificational logic, as well as the basics of more advanced topics such as set theory and modal logic. Complex ideas are explained in plain language that doesn’t. This book is a beautiful entry-point, a must, in the world of logic.

This book now stands in my list of outstanding books on logic: 1. Tarski's "Introduction to Logic", a jewel, followed by P.

Unsurpassed for its clarity and comprehensiveness, Hurley's, A CONCISE INTRODUCTION TO LOGIC is the #1 introductory logic textbook in the market.

In this Eleventh Edition, Hurley continues to build upon the tradition of a lucid, focused, and accessible presentation of the basic subject matter of logic, both formal and informal. Hurley's extensive, carefully sequenced 3/5(3). Classical logic is a 19th and 20th century innovation.

The name does not refer to classical antiquity, which used the term logic of fact, classical logic was the reconciliation of Aristotle's logic, which dominated most of the last years, with the propositional Stoic two were sometimes seen as irreconcilable. There are also supplements and Book Notes on various general mathematical logic texts and other books.

Web pages to support An Introduction to Gödel’s Theorems (CUP /). Additional materials include exercises, lecture notes ‘Gödel Without (Too Many) Tears’ for philosophers, and two very short courses for mathematicians.

Logic The main subject of Mathematical Logic is mathematical proof. In this introductory chapter we deal with the basics of formalizing such proofs.

The system we pick for the representation of proofs is Gentzen’s natural deduc-tion, from [8]. Our File Size: 1MB. Logic: Techniques of Formal Reasoning, 2/e is an introductory volume that teaches students to recognize and construct correct deductions.

It takes students through all logical steps--from premise to conclusion--and presents appropriate symbols and terms, while giving examples to clarify by:   A comprehensive and user-friendly guide to the use of logic in mathematical reasoning Mathematical Logic presents a comprehensive introduction to formal methods of logic and their use as a reliable tool for deductive reasoning.

With its user-friendly approach, this book successfully equips readers with the key concepts and methods for formulating valid Author: George Tourlakis. A book which I haven't used in class, but is considered by some to be the "Bible" of mathematical logic is From Frege to Godel: A Source Book in Mathematical Logic, This isn't really a textbook, like the other books I have listed, but it contains a collection of primary source articles and gives a good history of logic.

“One of the most careful and intensive among the introductory texts that can be used with a wide range of students. It builds remarkably sophisticated technical skills, a good sense of the nature of a formal system, and a solid and extensive background for more advanced work in logic.

Structure. The courses in logic at Harvard cover all of the major areas of mathematical logic—proof theory, recursion theory, model theory, and set theory—and, in addition, there are courses in closely related areas, such as the philosophy and foundations of mathematics, and theoretical issues in the theory of computation.

Ideal for students with no background in logic or philosophy, Simple Formal Logic provides a full system of logic adequate to handle everyday and philosophical reasoning.

By keeping out artificial techniques that arent natural to our everyday thinking process, Simple Formal Logic trains students to think through formal logical arguments for themselves, ingraining in them the.

Mathematical logic is a very deep topic and some books that call themselves "introductory" would be extremely challenging for anyone who wasn't a grad student or an advanced undergrad majoring in math (or rigorous computer science).Some, like P.

D. Magnus's forall x and the wikibooks Formal Logic text seem overly mathematical and too fast paced. Others, like Velleman's blogic, don't seem to be available in book form. There are plenty of nice introductory books in logic, like Barwise & Etchemendy, Hurley, Copi & Cohen, etc.

But those are all prohibitively expensive. This book is a beautiful entry-point, a must, in the world of logic. This book now stands in my list of outstanding books on logic: 1.
