Logik der Philosophie
Einführung in die Logik und Argumentationstheorie
1. Edition 2012
What is formal logic? And how does logically correct inference work? This introduction provides an entertaining and vivid description of logic for undergraduate study. It also shows how one can use the rules of logic for analysing argumentations.
This volume offers a precise depiction of how natural inference functions and provides many explanations and examples as well as introducing the reader to specific philosophical reflections, philosophical methods and the role of formal logic in understanding philosophy and life in general. The introduction is extensive and didactically well laid out and yet technically minimalist: It presents only the logical procedures that are truly necessary for successful and logically correct argumentation. For this reason it is suitable as a basic textbook for logic courses as well as for self-study. Further background knowledge is not required.
