9780195080292: Modern Logic: A Text in Elementary Symbolic Logic

Filling the need for an accessible, carefully structured introductory text in symbolic logic, Modern Logic has many features designed to improve students' comprehension of the subject, including a proof system that is the same as the award-winning computer program MacLogic, and a special appendix that shows how to use MacLogic as a teaching aid. There are graded exercises at the end of each chapter--more than 900 in all--with selected answers at the end of the book. Unlike competing texts, Modern Logic gives equal weight to semantics and proof theory and explains their relationship, and develops in detail techniques for symbolizing natural language in first-order logic. After a general introduction featuring the notion of logical form, the book offers sections on classical sentential logic, monadic predicate logic, and full first-order logic with identity. A concluding section deals with extensions of and alternatives to classical logic, including modal logic, intuitionistic logic, and fuzzy logic. For students of philosophy, mathematics, computer science, or linguistics, Modern Logic provides a thorough understanding of basic concepts and a sound basis for more advanced work.

Review:

"Looks like an attractive text, pitched at an appropriate level and with good exercises. I have adopted it."--A.M. Ungar, SUNY at Albany

"An excellent introduction to elementary logic. Rigorous yet accessible to the superior undergraduate student. The sections on extensions to classical logic are especially appreciated."--Jan A. Smucker, Hanover College

"Of very real value, especially the final chapter on intuitionism and fuzzy logic--long overdue in introductory texts."--Patrick Grim, State University of New York at Stony Brook

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Modern Logic is a text designed for a first course in symbolic logic for students in philosophy, mathematics, computer science, or linguistics. The book covers classical sentential logic, monadic predicate logic, and full first-order logic with identity, in three separate sections. Modern Logic s natural deduction system will be easy for students to understand, and the material is carefully structured, with graded exercises at the end of each section, selected answers to which are provided at the back of the book. The book s emphasis throughout is to give the student a thorough understanding of the concepts rather than just a facility with formal procedures. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780195080292
