A Professor of Philosophy at Roosevelt College and author of Logic: An Introduction, Lionel Ruby here discurses on ""the art of making sense"" and its components in a conversational tone that should thaw the wary. In probing semantics, logic, and scientific methods of thinking he considers such points as the nature of an argument, the law of the excluded middle, deductive and inductive reasoning, syllogisms, etc.... Under chapter headings which include ""How Not to Argue"" and ""On Sticking to the Point"" he sandwiches principles of logical thought and entertaining illustrations from such sources as Socrates, Moliere, Conan Doyle, Cronin. A good come-and-get-it on the popular level.
