Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The emphasis throughout is on the user doing logic be working the many problems in the text. Recommended unreservedly as a fascinating approach to a fascinating subject.' R. J. Wernick
Booknews
A text/software package designed as an experiential logic course. Through hundreds of exercises presented both in the text and software, the "study" of logic becomes the "doing" of logic. Designed for use with Tarski's World, a program available on Macintosh, NeXT, and IBM PCs equipped with Microsoft Windows. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
