Review

"...an excellent survey of issues." Gilbert Harman, Journal of Symbolic Logic

Book Description

The first systematic exposition of all the central topics in the philosophy of logic, Susan Haack's book has established an international reputation (translated into five languages) for its accessibility, clarity, conciseness, orderliness, and range as well as for its thorough scholarship and careful analyses.Haack discusses the scope and purpose of logic, validity, truth-functions, quantification and ontology, names, descriptions, truth, truth-bearers, the set-theoretical and semantic paradoxes, and modality. She also explores the motivations for a whole range of non-classical systems of logic, including many-valued logics, fuzzy logic, moddal and tense logics, and relevance logics.

If you just heard something about logic and is looking for something interesting to read there may be easier and funnier books. But, if you have some knowledge of elementary formal logic and are motivated to take some time to learn about the philosophy of logic, this is a very rewarding book - it's real modern analytic philosophy at its best.

Philosophy of logic . . . well, a discipline which really must be learned at the feet of a master. But for us ordinary folk who have to get through logic courses, Haack's book, despite the odd title, is a masterpiece of lucidity, simplicity, and comprehensiveness, in a field where virtually all other entrees read like "greek" for the greekless, or . . . well, logic for the ???

I highly recommend Philosophy of Logics to all who are familiar with at least first order predicate logic and wish to improve their understanding of logic. In addition to addressing fundamentals such as validity, sentence connectives, quantification, names and theories of truth it also illustrates extensions and restrictions of the 2-value propositional and first order predicate logic.

Format: Paperback
Haack does a decent job of introducing the important aspects of the philosophy of logic and introduces some intriguing theories of her own, but her style is dry and not easy to approach, even for a philosophical text.
