This book is cheap which is nice. What I am looking for is a book which is on the one hand very exhaustive, and on other hand can be read as be read as a textbook. 173 ratings — It is a lucid, focused, and accessible presentation of the basic subject matter of logic, both formal and informal. These submissions would still be yours to accept/reject/discuss. Graded online quizzes are also available, on request. 127 ratings — 1- Introduction to Logic by Harry J. Gensler. I’m curious: are you aware of any mathematicians out there who have put together a study guide similar to your own that helps those interested in mathematics as well to build their knowledge, step-by-step, from more basic mathematics to some of the most advanced? Even for someone with a background in logic this book is worthless, but especially for a beginner. Patrick Suppes’ «Introduction to logic», published 1981, avg rating 4.27 — Having a guide is great for allowing more time to admire the scenery, rather than focusing wholly on not falling over cliffs, so to speak. Thank you for this wonderful guide. I study philosophy in a continental philosophy-oriented college and, desperate as I was for advanced courses in logic, I almost cried when I found this jewel on the web (ok, maybe not, but I was very happy). 1 – I like that graph/ illustration for the cover page – is there any hidden meanings /logical truths or allusions behind it? Unsurpassed for its clarity and comprehensiveness, A Concise Introduction to Logic is certainly the best book on logic in the market. Obviously, I can’t link to the well-known PDF repositories which break copyright (even when the copied books are old ones and even out-of-print). published 1976, avg rating 3.90 — It is at quite an elementary level, and I’m not sure why one would choose it over other classic elementary texts. This is the book of Daniel Cunningham, published 1989, avg rating 3.96 — Share. Thanks ! There was a brief comment in version 10 of the Teach Yourself Logic Guide. Thanks for your help. Great read!

That's logic.”, “I suppose therefore that all things I see are illusions; I believe that nothing has ever existed of everything my lying memory tells me. published 1970, avg rating 4.10 — Most people who read this book are logic students. But I have had other recommendations, so perhaps I should take another look! firstly, thank you for assembling all this information about Logic and writing the Guide. published 1854, avg rating 4.02 — However, it’s more than 100 pages bigger than Girle’s, and I believe a bit wider in scope. But that book is about 20 years old, and is a couple of steps up from really introductory. I tried my luck with a few classics (Kleene’s, Shoenfield’s, Barwise’s Handbook, and basically all other books from your TYL “big books” guide that I could get my hands on), never going past skimming the first few chapters, realising that they just weren’t what I’m looking for. Of the other books I’ve used (Hughes & Cresswell, Sider, Girle…) this seems by far most similar to Girle’s book—not just in content but also in being written in a readable and engaging style. Could you recommend me any texts I could read to familiarise myself with Baby Logic? Thanks for your help! 297 ratings — Raymond Smullyan’s «A beginner’s guide to mathematical logic», Thank you so much for putting this online! The other more affordable books I have found are Bell & Machover’s book is still in print and not particularly expensive. 16,243 ratings — But I’d need to spend more time on the book to make a fair comparison. I do recall Fuzzy Sets, Fuzzy Logic, Fuzzy Methods by Hans Bandemer and Siegfried Gottwald seemed helpful at its level. If so, what are your thoughts on it? For a link to the first new chapter, see, What I read while social distancing, part 48 published 2003, avg rating 3.61 — Smullyan’s … A Beginner’s Guide to Mathematical Logic (Dover Publications, 2014) is more conventional [than his puzzle books]. 2 books Jane Bridge’s very compact Beginning Model Theory and Maria Manzano, Model Theory are realy hard for me to obtain specially no amazon and such markets available in my country and even if amazon was available due to differences in my country’s currency and dollar it will be ultra expensive if i want to order them from eu or us markets( I didn’t find any pdf versions of mentioned books) .i will be really grateful if u suggest some other alternatives As the same level as these two or some other cheaper ways to get access to these books so i can keep going according the program. I can’t give you a view, then, though preview pages look pretty encouraging. I think it is the best for ‘baby logic’. Are there any free resources you recommend to learn elementary logic? Hurley’s book is ok as an elementary text; but I would rather recommend Nick Smith’s Logic, The Laws of Truth. thank you very much for precisely pointing the difference between the books. The link is I’m using your guide to learn with a group right now, and while I have stumbled into a few reading lists for mathematics, none of them are quite like the richly annotated guide that you have provided with several carefully curated volumes to assist the learner at each stage. Required fields are marked *. 1,170 ratings — published 1988, avg rating 4.13 — I have found it very useful in preparing for graduate school. Do you think it would be suitable for learning more about sequent calculi in general, and proof theory in specific? NB: mathematical logic — so we are working a step up from the kind of ‘baby logic’ that philosophers may encounter in their first year courses. Thanks, glad you are finding TYL helpful. At last i wanted a bit help with fuzzy logic subjects if it is possible .maybe my request will be irrelevant but this is the only place i found my answers in it. I moved according to your list in the logic study program and almost i read all books mentioned till i got to chapter 4.1 No prizes for guessing who wins the prize for MUCH the best writing …, I’m starting work on updating the Teach Yourself Logic Study Guide (downloaded have 25K times so far this year … so seems to be useful!). It’s not quite out in the UK but is available from US Amazon. published 2013, avg rating 3.82 — The paper itself takes a category-theoretical view and introduces institutions, entailment systems, and of course logics, in awe-inspiring generality. Peter — In your Teach Yourself Logic p 63 you mention Katalin Bimbo’s text, in which you say you’re “not inclined to recommend it.” I’m working thru it now, and I must say, it’s chock full of information you won’t find anywhere else. Gödel Without (Too Many) Tears, by @PeterSmith Okay. I don’t know of comparably detailed resources on other areas of mathematics — but to be honest, I haven’t really looked around much! I plan to start reading it soon. Always good to hear the Guide is helping someone!
