* Graham Priest is a highly-respected logician, best known for his unorthodox views on contradictions and his work in non-standard logic* Explains the basics of modern formal logic in non-technical terms* Shows how logic and the rest of philosophy interrelate* Covers non-classical as well as classical logic most other introductory books don't* Contains a problem for each chapter so that readers can test their understanding, and a glossary of technical termsLogic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this lively and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong this conception is. He explores the philosophical roots of the subject, explaining how modern formal logic deals with issues ranging from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability and decision theory. Along the way, the basics of formal logic are explained in simple, non-technical terms, showing that logic is a powerful and exciting part of modern philosophy.
