I find it amazing that this book is available as of 10/15/2009. Kessinger Publishing Company deserves much praise for publishing it and Barnes and Nobles for making it available.
Henry Bradford Smith presents the material in a way that is very easy to follow. He seldom uses terms without defining them. He makes very few assumptions. His conviction is that traditional Aristotelian logic is necessary and complete. He rejects the notion the classical logic must accept the definitions presented by current mathematical theory.
Smith resolves the issues raised by the new definitions. He elucidates the meanings of the old definitions and clarifies their form. He remains faithful to the content of traditional logic.
If you are looking for a guide to teach you how to reason logically. If you want an approach that is not convoluted by the prevailing subjectivist thought forms and incessant denial of truth as an object. If you are looking for a traditional approach to a natural deduction system that preserves subalternation, look no farther. Get this book!
