Meaning and Argument

Meaning and Argument Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meaning and Argument shifts introductory logic from the traditional emphasis on proofs to the symbolization of arguments. It is an ideal introduction to formal logic, philosophical logic, and philosophy of language.

  • Distinctive approach in that this text is a philosophical, rather than mathematical introduction to logic

  • Concentrates on symbolization and does all the technical logic simply with truth tables and no derivations at all

  • Contains numerous exercises and a corresponding answer key

  • Extensive Appendix which allows the reader to explore subjects that go beyond what is usually covered in an introductory logic course.
