The study of logic is given great support by an orderly and perspicuous account of its central principles and techniques. To explain these accurately and comprehensively, in interesting style, illuminated by examples and reinforced by a wide array of meaningful exercises, has been the aim of this book from its very first days. These objectives we continue to pursue in this 10th edition of Introduction to Logic.

For undergraduate-level courses in Introduction to Logic. The most complete, authoritative treatment of introductory logic - both deductive and inductive, classical and modern - this text prepares students to understand, recognize, and apply classical syllogistic logic and the more powerful techniques of modern symbolic logic. All concepts and techniques are carefully and thoroughly explained and are brought to life through a wealth of real-life examples of lively arguments and explanations. These examples are drawn from political speeches, classics of philosophy (ancient and modern), scientific articles, writings on economics, literature, religious texts, and many recent writings on contemporary moral and social controversies familiar to students - all demonstrating the application of logical principles by serious writers and thinkers trying to solve real problems in a wide range of fields.
