Introducing Logic: A Graphic Guide

Dan Cryan, Sharron Shatil & Bill Mayblin

Introducing Graphic Guides  

The next sentence is false. The last sentence is true. Where’s the logic in that?

Logic is the backbone of Western civilization, holding together our systems of philosophy, science and law. And logic is all around us in our everyday lives, from the languages we speak to the most fundamental workings of our mobile phones. It can even tell us about how a soap opera is constructed.

Introducing Logic is a cleverly illustrated graphic guide to this fascinating area, which cuts across philosophy, science and much more.

From ‘fuzzy’ logic to the liar paradox, the book features ideas from thinkers such as Plato and Aristotle, through to some of the 20th century’s brightest minds: Alan Turing, who helped crack the Nazi Enigma code and laid the foundation for the computer age; Ludwig Wittgenstein, the complex, outstanding genius of 20th-century philosophy, the peace-campaigning, Bloomsbury-set philosopher Bertrand Russell, and many more.
