Overview

Logic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this engaging and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong that conception is.

Along the way, Priest lays out the basics of formal logic in simple, nontechnical terms.
