This new, revised edition of Peter Kreeft’s Socratic Logic is updated, adding new exercises and online access to answers to odd-numbered exercises.
This book is simple and user-friendly. It is highly interactive, with a plethora of exercises and a light, engaging style. Most beginners need a “back to basics” logic text rather than the latest overpriced one with state-of-the-art “bells and whistles” that they will never use outside class.
It is designed for do-it-yourselfers as well as classrooms. It emphasizes topics in proportion to probable student use: e.g., interpreting ordinary language, not only analyzing but also constructing effective arguments, smoking out hidden assumptions, making “argument maps,” andusing Socratic method in various circumstances. It is divided into eighty-eight mini-chapters for maximum mix-and-match flexibility
Peter Kreeft is the author of over 40 books, including A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Summa of the Summa, Christianity for Modern Pagans: A Commentary on Pascal's Penseés, and C.S. Lewis for the Third Millennium.
