A comprehensive introduction to formal logic, LOGIC AND PHILOSOPHY: A MODERN INTRODUCTION is a rigorous yet accessible text, appropriate for students encountering the subject for the first time. Reading the text is much like having a talented and patient instructor walking a student through difficult concepts in a lecture or during office hours. Abundant carefully crafted exercise sets accompanied by a clear, engaging exposition give students a firm grasp of basic concepts, which build to an exploration of sentential logic, 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 also examine the philosophical debates that led to the development of the field.
