简单的逻辑学 | Being Logical by Dennis Q. McInerny

Whether regarded as a science, an art, or a skill–and it can properly be regarded as all three–logic is the basis of our ability to think, analyze, argue, and communicate. Indeed, logic goes to the very core of what we mean by human intelligence. In this concise, crisply readable book, distinguished professor D. Q. McInerny offers an indispensable guide to using logic to advantage in everyday life. Written explicitly for the layperson, McInerny’s Being Logical promises to take its place beside Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style as a classic of lucid, invaluable advice.

As McInerny notes, logic is a deep, wide, and wonderfully varied field, with a bearing on every aspect of our intellectual life. A mastery of logic begins with an understanding of right reasoning–and encompasses a grasp of the close kinship between logical thought and logical expression, a knowledge of the basic terms of argument, and a familiarity with the pitfalls of illogical thinking. Accordingly, McInerny structures his book in a series of brief, penetrating chapters that build on one another to form a unified and coherent introduction to clear and effective reasoning.

At the heart of the book is a brilliant consideration of argument–how an argument is founded and elaborated, how it differs from other forms of intellectual discourse, and how it critically embodies the elements of logic. McInerny teases out the subtleties and complexities of premises and conclusions, differentiates statements of fact from statements of value, and discusses the principles and uses of every major type of argument, from the syllogistic to the conditional. In addition, he provides an incisive look at illogical thinking and explains how to recognize and avoid the most common errors of logic.

Elegant, pithy, and precise, Being Logical breaks logic down to its essentials through clear analysis, accessible examples, and focused insights. Whether you are a student or a teacher, a professional sharpening your career skills or an amateur devoted to the fine points of thought and expression, you are sure to find this brief guide to effecting reasoning both fascinating and illuminating.

这是一本足以彻底改变你思维世界的小书。美国著名逻辑学家、哲学教授D.Q.麦克伦尼,将一门宽广、深奥的逻辑科学以贴近生活、通俗易懂、妙趣横生的语言娓娓道来。它既没有刻板的理论教条,也不是正规的教科书,而是一本必不可多得的现实指南。

生活中,逻辑无处不在。无论我们是有意还是无意,逻辑无时不在服务于我们的生活。然而逻辑到底是什么,也许并没有太多的人有很清楚的概念。作者以其简练而又充满趣味的笔触,将逻辑学活化为一种艺术,从它的基本原理,到论证,到非逻辑思维的根源,再到28种就发生在你身边的非逻辑思维形式,带领我们进入这个精彩无比的逻辑世界,体会妙趣横生的思维交锋,跨过无处不在的逻辑陷阱,让你沉醉其中,欲罢不能。
