Description : Unsurpassed for its clarity and comprehensiveness, A CONCISE INTRODUCTION TO LOGIC is the #1 introductory logic textbook on the market. In this 13th Edition, Patrick Hurley and new co-author Lori Watson continue to build upon the tradition of a lucid, focused, and accessible presentation of the basic subject matter of both informal and formal logic. How Logical Are You? features connect a section's content to real-life scenarios pertinent to students' lives, using everyday examples to translate new notions and terms into concepts to which readers unfamiliar with the subject matter can relate. Living Logic, a new digital activity, allows students to apply the skills they learn to a real-world problem. The text's extensive, carefully sequenced exercises guide students toward greater proficiency with the skills they are learning.
