Editorial Reviews

Review

“The editors have compiled a very fine collection of essays on the nature of logic as it relates to broad philosophical concerns. This volume should serve as a valuable tool for students to see the applicability of formal logical techniques and results. It is a useful antidote to what can—and for students often does—seem to be the insulated nature of formal logic.”
David Boersema, Distinguished University Professor, Pacific University

“The formal logic that we teach in our introductory classes is simple, elegant, and as this thoughtfully conceived collection reminds us, often extremely puzzling. Thinking about Logic will motivate students to reflect both on fundamental notions of basic logic and on the relationship between formal reasoning and reasoning in other contexts. Undergraduate courses will be enriched and improved by adding it to the list of required readings.”
Danielle Macbeth, T. Wistar Brown Professor and Chair of Philosophy, Haverford College

“Anyone who studies formal logic is bound at some point to wonder what logic is all about. Thinking about the philosophical issues as you go along can help bring logic to life. This collection of classic papers is the ideal place to begin an exploration of the philosophy of logic.”
Derek Turner, Connecticut College
