Introduction to Logic

This well-organized book was designed to introduce students to a way of thinking that encourages precision and accuracy. As the text for a course in modern logic, it familiarizes readers with a complete theory of logical inference and its specific applications to mathematics and the empirical sciences. Part I deals with formal principles of inference and definition, includ This well-organized book was designed to introduce students to a way of thinking that encourages precision and accuracy. As the text for a course in modern logic, it familiarizes readers with a complete theory of logical inference and its specific applications to mathematics and the empirical sciences. Part I deals with formal principles of inference and definition, including a detailed attempt to relate the formal theory of inference to the standard informal proofs common throughout mathematics. An in-depth exploration of elementary intuitive set theory constitutes Part II, with separate chapters on sets, relations, and functions. The final section deals with the set-theoretical foundations of the axiomatic method and contains, in both the discussion and exercises, numerous examples of axiomatically formulated theories. Topics range from the theory of groups and the algebra of the real numbers to elementary probability theory, classical particle mechanics, and the theory of measurement of sensation intensities. Ideally suited for undergraduate courses, this text requires no background in mathematics or philosophy.

There are several problems with this book so I would not recommend it to someone trying to read a beginning logic book. The first and biggest problem is that for a "textbook for a first course..." there are NO answers to any of the exercises. In my opinion good textbooks, especially for math subjects should have answers in the back for at least one third of the chapter exercises. One ends up working problems with no good idea if one is on the right track unless one searches the internet and find There are several problems with this book so I would not recommend it to someone trying to read a beginning logic book. The first and biggest problem is that for a "textbook for a first course..." there are NO answers to any of the exercises. In my opinion good textbooks, especially for math subjects should have answers in the back for at least one third of the chapter exercises. One ends up working problems with no good idea if one is on the right track unless one searches the internet and finds similar problems. The second problem is style. There seems to be an inconsistency in the author's use of symbolic logic when describing ideas. I found this annoying as I would assume I knew what was described from previous math/logic books only to find out he was talking about something slightly different. The last issue might just be with me. I found the last four chapters to be much clearer than the first eight. This could be because the subject was areas of math which I was more familar with or because by then I was getting used to the writing style. In any case I thought it worth mentioning to someone in case they get discouraged with the early part.
