Newbie here with a question about books on logic
« on: August 06, 2018, 10:27:07 PM »
Hello peoples! What would you consider to be the definitive written work on logic? I'm not really looking for a list of fallacies, but on logic as a concept. The philosophical underpinnings, I guess. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Wow, that's a really open-ended question. Have we got any suggestions? I've never done a great deal of reading in logic, but I'm certain that some of our members have.

Thanks, John. I will check it out. The reviews look good.

It was a required text for a philosophy class I took in college.
