This is a shortened version of Logic, Third Edition, written by Stan Baronett. It includes the chapters 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 from the original text. Logic, Third Edition shows how logic relates to everyday life by demonstrating its applications in areas such as the workplace, media and entertainment, politics, science and technology, student life, and other places. It features an exceptionally clear writing style and a wealth of real-world examples and exercises. In this third edition, which has been thoroughly revised and expanded, the book now includes nearly 2,800 exercises, more than 200 of which are brand new; updates all throughout the book; and a revised and expanded ancillary package.
* 2800 exercises, more than 200 of which are brand new, invigorate one's understanding of logic.
Students benefit from having access to the most lucid explanations as well as examples drawn from real-world situations.
* A one-of-a-kind and in-depth explanation or model of the response to the first question of each exercise section demonstrates to students what is expected of their own answers.
* The book “Profiles in Logic” offers brief biographies of various individuals associated with logic, such as logicians, philosophers, mathematicians, and others.
* The “Logic Challenge” problems provide riddles and conundrums that bring a lighthearted spirit to the conclusion of each chapter.
* The material is made even easier to understand thanks to the inclusion of pedagogical elements such as marginal definitions, key terms, a glossary, reference boxes, and bulleted chapter summaries.
* Students can learn how to complete “truth tables” and Venn diagrams with the help of detailed guides.
