    One thought on “An Introduction to Formal Logic

    1. Luther Wilson

      This is the best logic textbook I've encountered so far. Very clear and precise in it's presentation of concepts. just finished basic propositional logic without conditionals, and have started the sections adding the material conditionals, and again, this is the best book I've tried so far. Next: proofs (trees), and then, quantification! (whoo hoo!! right?)ees are a breeze(sorry!)ed proofs section (for propositional logic), and finally moving beyond the "baby stuff" into Quantificational Logic! [...]

      This book was simpler and more conducive to internalizing basic logic than the UCLA Logic Software program and the accompanying "terrytext" that I used my first time around this stuff in undergrad.

      Not my style. Takes him 190 pages to get through what Smullyan covers in 30. There are a few good nuggets but for the most part his explanations confuse rather than illuminate.
