Nonsense: Red Herrings, Straw Men and Sacred Cows: How We Abuse Logic in Our Everyday Language Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

NONSENSE is the best compilation and study of verbal logical fallacies available anywhere. On one level, it is a handbook of the myriad ways we go about being illogical?how we deceive ourselves and others, how we think and argue in ways that are disorderly, disorganized, or irrelevant. On another level, NONSENSE is a short course in nonmathematical logical thinking, a form of thinking that is especially important for students of philosophy and economics. A book of remarkable scholarship, NONSENSE is unexpectedly relaxed, informal, and accessible. Robert Gula (1941?1989) was educated at Colby College and Harvard University and taught a course on logic among many other subjects at the Groton School in Massachusetts. He authored or coauthored sixteen books in addition to NONSENSE.
