    NOPE This book is just an expensive reminder that I am pathological than logical At first I thought I could handle Philosophy of Logic The first few chapters made sense Sure, I said to myself, I can see the fallacy in these arguments and whether they are deductive or inductive, etc But then came the proofsOOFS.That was when I knew I was in a world of hurt In high school I passed geometry with a very solid D Everyday I stared at that stupid red origami crane, watching it mock me as I attempted a [...]

    No CD Rom back in 72 when I took a 5 credit hour course at Metro State Very difficult and mathematical after the simple beginnings I think we were all baffled There were about ten guys in the class plus one female Absolutely gorgeous woman A tall, slender red haired gal who worked as a stripper and invited her classmates to come and see the show Married Date is approximate.

    The first logic textbook I went mostly through was by Copi and I must say Hurley s introduction was far better in format, content and exercises I cannot speak though for the sections on propositional and predicate logic, for I didn t read them in either Copi or Hurley Having gone through much of the content and ordering of information that Hurley, Copi and others gave numerous times, I now think much is done simply to be done, without any sense of relationship and practical value, and lots of co [...]

    It might seem odd to review a text book on the subject of logic I happen to think the thing that our society is lacking most nowadays is simply the ability to make rational decisions based on the skill needed to understand analysis and distinguish the rational from the irrational This book provides an excellent basis for disclosing poorly conceived political policies, finding flaws in what we read and see on television, and quite simply making sound arguments ourselves I find the chapter on Info [...]

    I have greatly enjoyed the study of logic, both in the context of college philosophy courses and in its application to daily life as the framework for rational thinking Of the logic texts I have read and used by Irving Copi, Trudy Govier and others this is the one I most enjoyed reading and feel I most benefitted from I have found that I most effectively gain mastery of new concepts through application and Hurley s book is packed with good examples I found working through these useful in being a [...]

    Read this for a logic class I would of much rather spent time on the fallacies and seen ways in which they are used both incorrectly and correctly I didn t really care for anything else in the book It was a decent textbook, but my horrible teacher didn t help, all she did was go through the book and never added anything else of her own.

    A great introduction to logic Well organized and clear, this is a great place to start for the person looking for exposure to the fundamentals of logic.

    Alvaro
    Loved it It needed an additional chapter on inductive logic but I really enjoyed it and I will be using it as a bible for my LSAT studies that is of course until I find a better book.

    A few things I liked about this book 1 It s very flexible and allows you to skip around That s a deliberate feature highlighted in the introduction the author offers several curricula that rearrange and omit various chapters and sections, depending on the interests of the student Each chapter and even most sections are or less indepndent while the previous sections sometimes enrich the experience, they aren t necessary Certainly the units are basically independent.2 Unlike most logic books, thi [...]

    One of the best books in Logic If you really interested to understand what is meant by deduction and induction, and formal and informal logic you should read this book.

    David
    As a preliminary note, this review pertains to the 1997 sixth edition, not the up to date 2008 edition I couldn t find that one on here This isn t a bad book I didn t enjoy it a great deal, but I suspect that is the subject matter than the author s treatment This book is much about reducing arguments to mathematical representations and using math like operations to test validity and such That is probably what logic is all about, but I had misconceived it as something much interesting I did en [...]

    Just finished this for a series of two classes I took Introduction to Logic and Symbolic Logic The only sections s I had trouble with were ACP and ICP, and I plan on doing of the practice exercises contained at the end of the section On that note, the book s exercises are really helpful, and I liked how the concepts were explained It not a book I would normally read, or one I thought I would ever review, but these classes have helped me with my argumentation, and the text was an integral part o [...]

    A gem of a book Clear, concise, elegant and to the point Makes one understand even the toughest topic of syllogistic logic in a easy way A must for anyone who wants to learn about logic, fallacies, definitions and their origin, and philosophical approach of logic It s a life changer if you want to develop the habit of debating or if you have to ever let people know why and how they are wrong during and argument Mr Hurley has done an excellent job by writing this book This is on top of the list o [...]

    There are three words that come to mind when I think of the word concise comprehensive, brief, and clear Whilst this textbook succeeds at being comprehensive, at over 670 pages it fails at being brief or clear Simple concepts are explained at such length as to render them baffling, and the writing falls significantly short of readable It is such a pity as it is an interesting topic.

    Timera Cyr
    A good text book, some of the concepts could have been explained a little clearly and some of the hypotheticals were cumbersome and weird However, I now love logic, but that may have to do with my awesome teacher and how she used this book.

    I disliked this book, as philosiphy is not my strong suit

    As expected, logical and concise A good refresh for those of us who have let the day to day fragment our thoughts.

    This is the best book on Logic for beginners It is exhaustive, has plenty of exercises, is very clear and systematic.

    Avel Deleon
    This a great introduction to logic It can be long winded at times, but for the most part it does a well job of explaining the material And do not worry, every chapter provides countless examples.

    Bilal
    Great book, but it s not a concise one actually.
