Description - The Snake and the Fox by Mary Haight

Offering a different way to look at and understand logic, this volume uses graphics to tell the story of how logic works, and why it works the way it does. Things explained and discussed in the text include basic logic concepts such as: sound and valid reasoning; logical form; formal and informal fallacies; necessary and contingent statements; inductive vs. deductive reasoning; the logic of statements, using truth-tables; the logic of sets, using Venn diagrams; and the logic of statements. Using proofs and rules of inference, Mary Haight covers material used in any orthodox introduction to logic course. She also includes some discussion on the philosophical theory underlying the logic: not just how to do it, but why it takes the form it does.
