Originally published in 1962. This book gives an account of the
concepts and methods of a basic part of logic. In chapter I
elementary ideas, including those of truth-functional argument and
truth-functional validity, are explained. Chapter II begins with a
more comprehensive account of truth-functionality; the leading
characteristics of the most important monadic and dyadic
truth-functions are described, and the different notations in use
are set forth. The main part of the book describes and explains
three different methods of testing truth-functional aguments and
agument forms for validity: the truthtable method, the deductive
method and the method of normal forms; for the benefit mainly of
readers who have not acquired in one way or another a general
facility in the manipulation of symbols some of the procedures have
been described in rather more detail than is common in texts of
this kind. In the final chapter the author discusses and rejects
the view, based largely on the so called paradoxes of material
implication, that truth-functional logic is not applicable in any
really important way to arguments of ordinary discourse.
