A Rulebook for Arguments. Next page. Review " The readiblity is excellent. The chapter summaries and charts are appropriate and helpful.

The explanations are easy enough for the novice while rigorous enough to remain a reference work for someone who may occasionally need to return to to a definition of some fallacy or another or needs a quick discussion of asyllogistic inference, for example.

The text covers Aristotilian and syllogistic logic quite well. I think the book's strongest point is the presentation of the informal fallacies. It provides a nice aid for students to sharpen their argumentive skills; even when they may be unfamiliar topics. Compatibility, predictive power, falsifiability, and simplicity are also very well explained.

The exercises provided are applicable to real world instances of scientific inquiry. The strength of the book is that no matter when a student reads it, it always is sure to have the latest and most pertinent examples. Irving M. Copi was a philosopher and logician. He has published many essays in moral and political philosophy in philosophical, medical, and legal journals.

He has served as a member of the Medical School faculty of the University of Michigan, and as Chairman of the University of Michigan faculty, where he has been an active member of the philosophy faculty since Tom Regan; he is also the author of Democracy ; the author of Four Systems ; the editor of Communism, Fascism, and Democracy ; the co-author with J.

McMahon studied physics, philosophy, and English Literature as an undergraduate, then took graduate degrees in psychology and philosophy. He has taught critical thinking, philosophy, statistics, and psychology, and currently teaches logic for Hawaii Pacific University. His professional interests include logic, epistemology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind, as well as cognitive science, psychometrics, computational theories of mind, and evolutionary psychology.

He is direct and articulate. However, the book should be used in conjunction with a class on logic this is as any textbook is meant to be used. I still, three years after my class, turn to this book for information and as a refresher. I even find myself visiting chapters which were not a part of my class on logic as a way to improve my thinking, writing, and understanding. My only complaint is that he is inconsistent with his examples, which makes it difficult to transfer principles from one set of demonstrations to another.

Others may find this variety to be interesting, but personally, I need consistency throughout an explanation, at which point I can jettison the examples and apply the principles. When the explanation of principles utilizes a variety of examples, I have difficulty following the explanation. For example, "Socrates is a mortal" cannot shift to "Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president" until the principles that follow from the assertions are solid in my mind.

Nevertheless, a useful text and a solid introduction. It is not in the least a book to be "sold back" at the end of the semester,.

There are times where the concepts aren't explained well enough and other times where they're explained excessively to that point that it feels like you're reading the same thing over and over again. The logic syntax used in the book doesn't always match up with other sources so it can be confusing to keep the symbols straight.

Also, it's incredibly boring for a non-Philo major, but that's more on the material than the book. I don't like writing negative reviews but I ordered this book for my Introduction to Logic class on August 28th before the class had started. I received the book three weeks later on September 16th. If I had depended on this book I would have missed out on two problem sets and probably failed the first exam.

Fortunately, I found the online version of the textbook and will be returning this package as is. Great text for learning a very difficult subject. I like this book, the only problem is that the examples are not the same for the United States version. I could not do the homework for my class because of this. Other than that this book was good!
