The first systematic exposition of all the central topics in the
philosophy of logic, Susan Haack's book has established an
international reputation (translated into five languages) for its
accessibility, clarity, conciseness, orderliness, and range as well
as for its thorough scholarship and careful analyses. Haack
discusses the scope and purpose of logic, validity,
truth-functions, quantification and ontology, names, descriptions,
truth, truth-bearers, the set-theoretical and semantic paradoxes,
and modality. She also explores the motivations for a whole range
of non-classical systems of logic, including many-valued logics,
fuzzy logic, moddal and tense logics, and relevance logics.
Persupposing only an elementary knowledge of formal logic, this
book includes many useful summary tables and diagrams, as well as a
helpful glossary of technical terms. Wide-ranging, informative, and
eminently readable, this book has proven a valuable resource for
generations of students and scholars in a variety of disciplines
outside philosophy needing guidance on the philosophy of logic.
