In this unique fusion of logical thought and inimitable whimsy, Over 350 ingenious problems involve classical logic: logic is expressed in terms of symbols; syllogisms and the sorites are diagrammed; logic becomes a game played with 2 diagrams and a set of counters. Two books bound as one.

Lewis Carroll (1832-98) was the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University. "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and its sequel, " Through the Looking Glass, " are rich repositories of his sparkling gifts for wordplay, logic, and fantasy.
