At the center of the rise of modern logic in the twentieth century was an unquestioned commitment to the idea that inclusive disjunction and negation were the fundamental logical operations. Lost in the development of this logic was an alternative starting point proposed by earlier idealist logicians taking exclusive disjunction and negation as fundamental.
Logic: Inquiry, Argument, and Order is the first book ofits kind to frame the study of introductory logic in terms ofproblems connected to wider issues of knowledge and judgment thatarise in the context of racial, cultural, and religious diversity.With its accessible style and integration of philosophical inquiryand real-life concerns, this book offers a novel approach to thetheory of logic and its relevance to questions of meaning and valuethat arise in the world around us.
The book poses four problems for logic: Is logic separate fromexperience? Does logic require dualisms? Can logic reconcileopposed ways of understanding the world? And when things aredivided, does the boundary have a logic? The author begins theexploration of these questions with a discussion of the process ofanalyzing and constructing arguments. Using the logical theories ofC. S. Peirce, John Dewey, and Josiah Royce to frame theinvestigation, subsequent chapters outline the process of inquiry,the concept of communicative action, the nature of validity,categorical reasoning through the theory of the syllogism, andinductive reasoning and probability. The book concludes with apresentation of modal logic, propositional logic, andquantification.
Logic is presented as emerging from the activities of inquiryand communication, allowing readers to understand even the mostdifficult aspects of formal logic as straightforward developmentsof the process of anticipating and taking action. Numerous practiceproblems use arguments related to issues of diversity and socialtheory, and the book introduces methods of proving validity thatinclude Venn diagrams, natural deduction, and the method oftableaux.
Logic: Inquiry, Argument, and Order is an ideal book forcourses on philosophical methods and critical reasoning at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also an insightfulreference for anyone who would like to explore a cross-culturalapproach to the topic of logic.
