5.0 out of 5 stars Dry, concise classic, 11 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Beginning Logic (Paperback)
Just to offer an alternative to the previous review: this is a classic introduction to logic. It's precise, clear, and can take the committed reader from a standing start to some quite complex issues, offering plenty of practical exercises along the way. What it isn't is fluffy or padded. Lemmon does not waste words, and the overall effect is more like a maths textbook than like a work in the humanities. So, if you're looking for storytelling and friendliness in an introduction to logic, then avoid this book (try Paul Tomassi's Logic instead). But if you'd prefer a tight, problem-driven, demanding learning experience, try it. I learned logic from this book when I was an undergraduate. I'm now a philosophy lecturer.
