Expanded, Corrected, Completely Redesigned New Edition!
Logic is the art of reasoning well—of learning to think God's thoughts after Him. In this book, directed toward junior-high students, Douglas Wilson and James Nance lay the proper foundation of reasoning in the truth of God, and go on to train students in the crucial skills of defining terms, recognizing basic types of statements, arguing with syllogisms, arguing in ordinary language, and identifying informal fallacies.
Designed for 8th-grade and up, the lessons in this text cover definitions, logical statements, fallacies, syllogisms, and many other elements. This course is a thorough introduction and serves as both a self-contained course and a preparatory course for more advanced studies.
Together with Intermediate Logic, this text provides students with a rigorous course in logic that will help them excel in every other subject they will study, from math and science to rhetoric and the humanities. Extensively revised and updated, with additional review questions and exercises for each unit, this book is an essential part of every Christian school or home school curriculum.
