Logic, easier than I thought
Reading logic intimidates me with technicalities but Logic of Alice was easier to read than I thought.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Multiple examples of statements by Alice and the colorful characters are absurd.
The author decodes them by explaining the illogical thinking and pointing out the type of logic error. He then connects the reader to present day thinking and pointing out the type of logic error.
I found that in this manner I don't find my self preoccupied in memorizing the classification of logic but rather associated with the classical statements of Alice which are vividly silly and if I need to know a specific logic classification I just look it up in the index.
The book also entertains the reader with historical information, it was a delight to read about Carol Lewis and a few glimpses of his diary.
The author seduces the reader to learn by using his wit. I found each page refreshing. I liked the large headlines, sometimes up to three in some pages.
I was impressed to read the extensive selected bibliography with the authors own written reviews. It reflects a scholarly work. Cleverly brilliant.
