Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Logic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this engaging and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong that conception is. He explores the philosophical roots of the subject, explaining how modern formal logic deals with issues ranging from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability and decision theory. Along the way, Priest lays out the basics of formal logic in simple, nontechnical terms.

 

Book News Annotation:

Priest (philosophy, U. of Melbourne, Australia) explores the roots of logic in the larger field of philosophy. His topics include truth functions, descriptions and existence, necessity and possibility, the future and the past, identity and change, probability and inverse probability, and decision theory. The 2000 edition has been updated with new color illustrations and additional text. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
