This widely used textbook of modern formal logic now offers a number of new features. Incorporating updated notations, selective answers to exercises, expanded treatment of natural deduction, and new discussions of predicate-functor logic and the affinities between higher set theory and the elementary logic of terms, W. V. Quine’s new edition will serve admirably for both classroom and independent use.
Quine’s book is of first-rate quality, and presents the materials of modern formal logic in a masterly fashion… A superb text: authoritative, mature, and brilliant and original in its exposition.
For a treatment of such modest size, it abounds in exciting ideas, freshness of perspective on old logical and philosophical problems, and in lucid and exact analysis.
It is admirably precise and it is written with a deliciously light touch.
W. V. Quine was Edgar Pierce Professor of Philosophy, Harvard University. He wrote twenty-one books, thirteen of them published by Harvard University Press.
