About the Authors
  • This revised and considerably expanded 2nd edition brings together a wide range of topics, including modal, tense, conditional, intuitionist, many-valued, paraconsistent, relevant, and fuzzy logics. Part 1, on propositional logic, is the old Introduction, but contains much new material. Part 2 is entirely new, and covers quantification and identity for all the logics in Part 1. The material is unified by the underlying theme of world semantics. All of the topics are explained clearly using devices such as tableau proofs, and their relation to current philosophical issues and debates are discussed. Students with a basic understanding of classical logic will find this book an invaluable introduction to an area that has become of central importance in both logic and philosophy. It will also interest people working in mathematics and computer science who wish to know about the area.

    • Second edition includes sections on tense logic and logics of constrictible negation
    • Provides new material on relevant logics and fuzzy logics
    • Much expanded and now in a larger format

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This revised and considerably expanded second edition is over twice as long and contains a new second part on quantification and identity for all the logics appearing in the first part of the book, which also contains much new material. Due to the author's clear and approachable style, this book may be interesting to a large circle of logicians, mathematicians and philosophers. Students with a basic understanding of classical logic will find this book an invaluable introduction to an area that has become of central importance in logic, philosophy and, generally, in the methodology of science."
