Thinking about Logic: Classic Essays
(Westview Press, 2010)

This accessible and thought-provoking collection of classic articles illuminates how logic relates to perennial philosophical issues about knowledge, meaning, rationality, and reality. The editors have selected each essay for its brevity, clarity, and impact and have included insightful introductions and discussion questions. The puzzles raised will help readers acquire a more thorough understanding of fundamental logic concepts and a firmer command of the connections between formal logic and other areas of philosophical study: epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, and metaphysics. Steven Cahn (Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in philosophy and urban education. Robert B. Talisse (Philosophy, 2001) serves as associate professor of philosophy and political science at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
