Overview

Yes, this is the Lewis Carroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland, and this work shows the same quirky humor. Here you see Carroll the mathematician at his playful best. Don't let the title of the first work mislead you--this isn't about modern symbolic logic but about ways of expressing classical logic with symbols. It's loaded with amusing problems to delight any mathematical puzzler. He turns logic into a game played with diagrams and counters, giving you hundreds of challenging and witty syllogisms to solve. Great mind-stretching fun.


Over 350 ingenious problems involving classical logic: logic is expressed in terms of symbols; syllogisms and the sorites are diagrammed; logic becomes a game played with two diagrams and a set of counters.


Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 - 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, Symbolic Logic, as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all examples of the genre of literary nonsense.


He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy, which you will enjoy in each pay of this book!

This is absolutely the worst put together book I have ever purchased from Barnes and Noble (Relativity: The Special and General Theory is a close second). There is no publication information, so I have no idea who published this monstrosity. The layout is completely inane and frequently you will find things like "pg_xxi" in the middle of paragraphs. There are references to pages that are completely left blank (e.g. "...described on pg _"). I have not seen any other publications of this book, but I would not recommend purchasing this copy. Barnes and Noble should be ashamed that they even offer this piece of crap.  Huge waste of money.
