Rigorous yet intuitive and accessible, Introduction to Formal Logic provides a focused, "nuts-and-bolts" introduction to formal deductive logic that covers syntax, semantics, translation, and natural deduction for propositional and predicate logics. For instructors who want to go beyond a basic introduction to explore the connection between formal logic techniques and philosophy, Oxford also publishes Introduction to Formal Logic with Philosophical Applications, an extended version of this text that incorporates two chapters of stand-alone essays on logic and its application in philosophy and beyond.

Review quote

"Introduction to Formal Logic is a superb treatment of the subject. It is unusually lucid, meeting students where they are and guiding them in a step-by-step manner through the rigors of symbolic logic. All of this without sacrificing the kind of detail and precision that is a sine qua non for textbooks of this kind."--Michael Futch, University of Tulsa

"This is a superb treatment of formal logic. In my opinion, it's not too difficult and not too easy."--Leemon McHenry, California State University, Northridge

"This is a book that enables students to become comfortable with the basics of logic while also allowing them to understand why they are doing logic."--Andrew Winters, Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania
