Abstract

The dual purpose of this volume–to provide a distinctively philosophical introduction to logic, as well as a logic-oriented approach to philosophy–makes this book a unique and worthwhile primary text for logic and/or philosophy courses. Logic and Philosophy covers a variety of elementary formal and informal types of reasoning, including a chapter on traditional logic that culminates in a treatment of Aristotle’s philosophy of science; a truth-functional logic chapter that examines Wittgenstein’s philosophy of language, logic, and mysticism; and sections on induction, analogy, and fallacies that incorporate material on mind-body dualism, pseudoscience, the “raven paradox,” and proofs of God.
