Product description


""[I]f you are a teacher in the market for a new logic text, or a student looking for very helpful reading, this could indeed be the book for you.""

From the Back Cover

"Smith's book combines accessibility with comprehensiveness in a way that I have not found in other texts. It is very readable and well paced, but does not sacrifice precision. Difficult issues aren't glossed over or skipped, but are introduced at a gentle pace for novice logicians. As a teacher of logic, I see real benefits in Smith's approach."--Jennifer Duke-Yonge, Macquarie University, Australia

"Lots of books aim to provide a first introduction to symbolic logic. I predict that this one will be widely adopted throughout the English-speaking world. One of its unique strengths is that it broaches important philosophical issues that naturally arise in connection with symbolic logic. The book thus serves both as an introduction to logic itself and to the philosophy of logic."--Stewart Shapiro, editor of The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic
