A First Course in LogicChris Slocombe
Some claim logic has little to do with philosophy, let alone real life. But its methods affect our actions and beliefs on a daily basis—from the abstract questions (What is truth; can we know it?) to deciding which route is best to take to work. In this new logic textbook, Chris Slocombe guides us through the practice, problems, and paradoxes of logic, illuminating the field as never before. Developed in conjunction with years of teaching at the University of Oxford, the course is accessibly written and tailored to give students of logic a thorough command of the subject, whether approaching it for the first time or delving deeper. With examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, numerous appendices, and truth tables throughout, Testing Arguments is an indispensable learning tool.
