It succeeds in achieving great precision without seeming pedantic and great depth without compromising accessibility. One main advantage of this book relative to its competitors is the lucidity with which it explains, in ways that even beginners can fully appreciate, the rapport between semantic and syntactic captures of logical consequence. Another marked advantage is the book's emphasis on deduction and its insistence on motivating the various clauses of the rules of deduction by showing, for example, what would ensue had these clauses been flouted. In this, Deductive Logic fills a real lacuna in logic-instruction and avoids the common pedagogical pitfalls of instruction via the tree method, where students find it rather mysterious why and how the method really works.

I find it to be very useful as a supplement to the course I am taking. Very easy to underestand the themes exposed in the book. The explanations ara clear and very didatic. An easy way to study Logic. One person found this helpful.

I confess I've never seen the published version of Goldfarb's Deductive Logic, but I've held on for more than a decade to his class notes, and that's saying something, given my aversion to accumulating schtuff. The "modern classic" review on this page makes the book sound just like the notes. If so, the review is right on. It's hard to make such a dry subject interersting, to avoid a pedantic tone, to give a cumulative impression rather than a brute dictum that the study of logic follows naturally from the universal human duty to think clearly and maybe even from the more basic duty to live well.

Goldfarb manages to do all of this. Read his book. I was lucky enough to take Professor Goldfarb's Deductive Logic class six or seven years ago at Harvard. I continue to regard it as the best class I have ever taken.

There's a cliche that a liberal arts education teaches you "how to think. I wish Professor Goldfarb's class had been a Harvard requirement. The class followed this textbook closely. The book is concise, rigorous, and well-written. I admit that I'm biased, but I've looked at a few other logic texts, and I have yet to find one that matches the elegance and clarity of this one. Professor Goldfarb, his class, and this book receive my highest recommendation.

Logic is the study of principles of reasoning. It is concerned not with how people actually reason, but rather with how people ought to reason if they wish to ensure the truth of their results. Moreover, the principles of logic are general: they do not govern reasoning in one specific subject matter or another, but with reasoning as it applies to any and all areas of study. Reasoning is a matter of drawing conclusions, or inferring. Hence in logic we are often concerned with arguments, that is, inferences from premises to conclusions. An example familiar since antiquity is this:.
