I couldn’t agree more. The section on diagraming arguments not only provides an excellent primer on the structure of reasoning, but also includes a huge number of examples taken from very interesting primary sources.
This means that you learn the elements of logic while logicaa learning key ideas from the history of philosophy. The section on logical fallacies has foreve My logic professor called the Copi and Cohen text a “libraso”, a rather informal way of saying the book is a classic in the field.
The section on logical fallacies has forever changed my outlook on the world. When I scroll through Twitter, listen to political discourse, or read the newspaper, I now see fallacious arguments everywhere.
This section would make very good complementary reading for a course on rhetoric. Perhaps my favorite part of the book. Syllogistic reasoning is given a thorough treatment, complete with a clear explanation of how to use a Venn diagram to evaluate validity. It is amazing to see how a visual representation of a syllogism can make clear what at first glance seems unintelligible. If you are looking for an up-to-date treatment of the methods of deduction that have logiac philosophy, mathematics, and science since the time of Aristotle, this book is an excellent choice.
We moved to my professor’s own text for the treatment of modern mathematical logic, but the Copi and Cohen text has an extensive treatment of this topic well. The previous sections you can probably teach yourself, but I would recommend a skilled professor to walk you through the complexities of symbolic logic.
The final chapters are quite rigorous. Overall, this is an excellent book that clearly presents the key concepts of college level logic. What makes this a 5-star book is the wealth of examples taken from a huge array of primary sources.
