Maduabuchi F. Dukor
An introductory text to symbolic and philosophical logic, with illustrations, examples, models of problem solving and essays.
The study of philosophy should have its background in logic, which, besides the other core disciplines like metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, endows individuals with the rigour of critical thinking in the pursuit of greater horizons of knowledge.
The ever-increasing relevance of logic to computer science and the modern age is a challenge to students in all domains. As a discipline of an infinity of possible worlds, logic probes and pushes forward the horizons of knowledge.
This book is intended not only as a textbook but also as an introductory guide to the study of symbolic logic.
