Overview

"This is as good an introduction to propositional logic as there is. The book also brings out in a clear and engaging way the philosophical applications of logic." - Paul Snowdon, University College London "An excellent introduction to logic for all philosophy students. If you want to learn how logic works, why it is important, and how there are many live philosophical issues raised by all of this, Garrett's book is an excellent place to start." - Greg Restall, University of Melbourne Elementary Logic explains what logic is, how it is done, and why it can be exciting. The book covers the central part of logic that all students have to learn: propositional logic. It aims to provide a crystal-clear introduction to what is often regarded as the most technically difficult area in philosophy. The book opens with an explanation of what logic is and how it is constructed. Subsequent chapters take the reader step-by-step through all aspects of elementary logic. Throughout, ideas are explained simply and directly, with the chapters packed with overviews, illustrative examples, and summaries. Each chapter builds on previous explanation and example, with the final chapters presenting more advanced methods. After a discussion of meta-logic and logical systems, the book closes with an exploration of how paradoxes can exist in the world of logic. Elementary Logic's clarity and engagement make it ideal for any reader studying logic for the first time.
