DESCRIPTION:

Appendices cover symbolic logic and the logic of the syllogism, the construction and use of truth-tables, and proofs of two theorems."One of the clearest and simplest introductions to a subject which is very much alive."—*Mathematics Gazette.*. From the Back CoverThis is probably the clearest book ever written on symbolic logic for the philosopher, the general scientist, and the layman. It covers the study of forms, essentials of logical structure, generalization, classes, and the principal relations among them, universe of classes, the deductive system of classes, the algebra of logic, abstraction and interpretation, calculus of propositions, the assumptions of Whitehead and Russell's *Principia Mathematica,* and logistics. No special knowledge of mathematics is required here; even if y

Excellent logic book JR Crombez, Ph.D. Read the chapter summaries first, read the chapters next, read the chapter exercises and do them. This is an excellent book!. Lothringen said Four Stars. Fairly good.. Very clear introduction to a difficult subject A Customer Symbolic Logic can be a very daunting study, even to those already familiar with traditional Aristotelian logic. Langer's book, however, makes symbolic logic comprehensible to the average educated person, so that the array of logical symbols and mathematical formulae employed in symbolic logic seem not so intimidating after all. Clarity of presentation is this book's chief virtue. Admittedly, it is a bit dated, but for someone approaching the study of symbolic logic for the first time, it cannot be surpassed. It would make a suitable t

It covers the study of forms, essentials of logical structure, generalization, classes, and the principal relations among them, universe of classes, the deductive system of classes, the algebra of logic, abstraction and interpretation, calculus of propositions, the assumptions of Whitehead and Russell's *Principia Mathematica,* and logistics. No special knowledge of mathematics is required here; even if you have forgotten most of your high school algebra, you can learn to use mathematical logic by following the directions in this book.Now revised and corrected, the book allows you to start with the simplest symbols and conventions and end up with a remarkable grasp of the Boole-Schroeder and Russell-Whitehead systems. For years it has received the appreciation of those who have been rebuffed by other introductory works because of insufficient mathematical training. Appendices cover symbolic logic and the logic of the sy
