about

Logic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this lively and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong this conception is. He explores the philosophical roots of the subject, explaining how modern formallogic deals with issues ranging from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability and decision theory.
