About the Author:

Patrick Hurley received his bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a second major in philosophy and a physics minor) from Gonzaga University in 1964 and his Ph.D. in philosophy of science with an emphasis in history of philosophy from Saint Louis University in 1973. In 1972, he began teaching at the University of San Diego, where his courses included logic, philosophy of science, metaphysics, process philosophy, and legal ethics. In 1987, he received his J.D. from the University of San Diego, and he is currently a member of the California Bar Association. He retired from teaching in 2008, but continues his research and writing, including work on A Concise Introduction to Logic. His interests include music, art, opera, environmental issues, fishing, and skiing. He is married to Dr. Linda Peterson, who retired from teaching philosophy at the University of San Diego in 2015.

Lori Watson received her bachelor's degree in philosophy and political science from Virginia Tech in 1994, a Master of Arts in philosophy from Virginia Tech in 1996, and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Illinois-Chicago in 2004. She was assistant professor of philosophy at Eastern Michigan University from 2004-2007; In 2007, she moved to the University of San Diego. She is currently professor of philosophy and chair of the philosophy department at the University of San Diego, where she regularly teaches logic, legal ethics, and sex equality. Her research interests lie at the intersection of political philosophy, feminism, and law. She has recently completed a book entitled Equal Citizenship and Public Reason: A Feminist Political Liberalism (with Dr. Christie Hartley) and is working on a book entitled Debating Sex Work. She enjoys spending time with her wife, Michelle Watson, and her two dogs Nikki and Grace.

Review:

"Hurley is the classic logic textbook. In my fifteen years as a logic professor, I have tried out other textbooks, but I keep coming back to Hurley to give the most straightforward explanations and to provide the best exercises to stretch the students' capacities and to sharpen the students' skills."

"I love this textbook. I have been using various editions for the last 12 years and will continue to do so."

"I am happy to use Hurley to teach Logic today. It is consistently clear and concise while providing plenty of practice material."
