A fun yet challenging introduction to propositional logic, treating the symbolization of English sentences and developing formal-proof, truth-table, and truth-tree techniques for evaluating arguments. Material is organized around natural-deduction formal-proof procedures. Logic is applied to content commonly encountered by undergraduate students, with examples and exercises drawn from comics, newspaper articles, television, and textbooks. Each logical connective is the subject of one chapter, allowing students to master both symbolization and proof moves before tackling the next connective. This third edition contains new exercises and examples, a chapter on truth trees, and an appendix on metatheory. In this edition, derived rules are presented in two stages to facilitate learning. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Publisher:

An introduction to the fundamental branch of symbolic logic -- the logic of statements.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Designed to make logic interesting and accessible — without sacrificing content or rigor — this classic introduction to contemporary propositional logic explains the symbolization of English sentences and develops formal-proof, truth-table, and truth-tree techniques for evaluating arguments. Key Topics: Organizes content around natural-deduction formal-proof procedures, truth tables, and truth trees. Also presents logical statement connectives gradually, one per chapter, and finally, increases readers' awareness of the arguments they read and hear every day by providing examples of actual arguments to which they can readily relate.
