This was a great eye-opener for me; I’d always had lgoic skeptical and questioning way of thinking, but often although Lgic have a gut sense that something I was hearing in a commercial, a political speech, an argument didn’t hold water, I couldn’t put my finger on the problem or tell itroduction else why I wasn’t buying it.
This book explained logical fallacies and provided the names, and clear examples, of a series of common fallacies and false syllogisms.
Introduction to Logic
It has been a huge help in becoming a smarter voter, consumer, and general decision-maker. Can’t recommend this one too strongly, especially in this day and age when schools do less and less to teach critical thinking and too much political discourse is logically totally goofy.
Apr 19, carl rated it it was amazing Shelves: Apr 30, Fernanda Ribeiro rated it it was amazing Shelves: Introvuction you want to start to study logic, this is the book! Nov 03, Alex Ankarr rated it really liked it. I got a lot out of it. My hardback edition was also rather beautiful.
Sadly I would now be hard coopi to define a syllogism or inductive reasoning!
May 11, Jacob Aitken rated it it was amazing Shelves: Probably the most universal logic textbook on college campus. It’s become a classic at this point. It’s hard to justify paying the insane price. What makes this text unique is its focus on the function of language. May 08, Sharon Barrow Wilfong rated it really liked it. This book introduces several methods of analyzing truth claims about reality and the universe and how to express these truths using mathematical symbols and formulae.
I found some of it interesting, especially the section on argument fallacies but some of it seemed rather redundant. Rather how many different ways can we express “if A is true than B is also true” or conversely, “if C is not always true, then D cannot always or ever be true; if F is true, then G must be false And This book introduces several methods of analyzing truth claims about reality and the universe and how to express these truths using mathematical symbols and formulae.
And of course, the formulae get more complicated as the truths build upon each other.
Borgers : Review: Irving M. Copi, Introduction to Logic
Read this as a first-semester senior in college with Dr. In a class of 40 or so, I was first in the class all semester, and then on the final exam, I forgot to study an entire section, and I dropped down to second.
I can remember sitting there for a minute after the bell had inteoduction to end the exam hour, and I was stuck on a certain problem. Suddenly it just came to me. I went to Dr. Taylor’s office after he had graded them, and I had come coip with the correct answer. Jan 21, Argin Gerigorian rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the best textbooks, Copi and Cohen don’t miss a thing. It is very difficult though since they use a lot of symbols and formulas for logical structures. Logic is similar to learning introducttion new language whether Spanish or Coding, it takes a lot of practice, something that the authors provide at the end of each chapter.
This book was also highly praised by Greg Bahnsen, he recommends it in almost all of his courses lpgic philosophy or logic. Dec 30, Dan rated it it was amazing. Feb 18, Pankhuri added it Shelves: Aug 21, Benandvanessa rated it it was amazing. Yes, I am a geek. This was a textbook. But it’s really good! Apr 07, Jonathan rated it really ocpi it.
The only textbook from college worth keeping! A solid, classic introduction. Copi explains well and uses good examples. The book begins with an introduction of the very basic terminology – propositions, premises, and conclusions. It might sound very naive to start this low, but it helped me to refer back to the precise definitions of these words while reading through the rest of the chapters.
Written in plain and simple language, the book covers a breadth of concepts from categorization of fallacies to Venn diagrams to necessary and sufficient conditions. Some of these were new to me while others were a pleasant The book begins with an introduction of the very basic terminology – propositions, premises, and conclusions.
Some of these were new to me while others were a pleasant revival. The exercises and puzzles throughout the book reinforce your understanding of what you just read.
Most of the book concentrates on deductive and inductive reasoning and the author did an excellent job in convincing that they were most crucial components of any logical discussion.
I found the last few chapters – Analogical Reasoning through Science and Hypothesis, very interesting. However the chapter on Probability could be better by discussing more real-world scenarios. May 23, Arthur Kyriazis rated it it was amazing. That is, to be brief, what the future holds in store for us all. Nov 25, John Wilson rated it it was amazing.
I read an earlier version of this book forty years ago and it still impresses me every time I open it. Irving Copi is the best on the market: A must for writers who want to make strong arguments.
Dec 21, Daniel rated it liked it. Good introduction to classical and modern logic. But a pretty dull read. For an introductory book it felt really advanced. Just not for me. I now actively warn people about the class I took.
Jul 07, Jesus Cris rated it liked it. It’s needs to include more examples and the mechanics of the crucial thinking process. Es la piedra en el zapato que, luego de sacarla, resulta ser un intorduction. Jun 15, Melissa marked it as to-read.
