Summary

For more than twenty years, introductory logic students have relied on this text to provide clear lessons in logic as well as practical applications of the discipline. Baum emphasizes formal logic and uses such elements of popular culture as cartoons and advertisements to illustrate technical concepts. The text addresses all the basic concepts of logic, including informal analysis of statements and arguments, Aristotelian logic, propositional logic, quantificational logic, enumerative induction, the scientific method, probability, informal fallacies, definitions, and applied logic.

Features

  • Baum provides step-by-step guidance for Venn diagrams, truth-tables and deductive proofs.
  • Student-oriented examples tie logic to career interests, with explanations that examine logics relevance to daily life.
  • More than 2500 exercises are placed throughout the chapters. Answers to odd-numbered questions are in the back of the book, and answers to even-numbered questions are in the instructors manual and study guide.
  • Exercises direct students to examine arguments found not only in traditional philosophical writings, but also in current advertisements, cartoons and articles.
