This is the latest in the series by D.Q. McInerny, professor of Philosophy at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska.
Most textbooks written on the topic of logic tend to assume, erroneously, that the student has a solid background in the subject. Dr. McInerny’s many years of teaching experience together with his perfected revised notes has resulted in a thorough and complete study of Foundational Logic (classical or Aristotelian logic), beginning “at the beginning”.
The chapters include: The Sources of Logic:The Three Acts of the Intellect, Ideas and Their Expression, The Varieties of Ideas, The Categories, Definition and Division, Judgment, The Varieties of Propositions, Further Explorations in Immediate Inference, Reasoning, The Figures and Moods of the Syllogism, The Rules of the Syllogism, Variations on Syllogistic Reasoning;Making Arguments, Conditional Reasoning, Inductive Reasoning, and Fallacious Reasoning.
