Logic: A Very Short Introduction

Second Edition


Graham Priest

October 2017

Very Short Introductions

Graham Priest shows that formal logic is a powerful, exciting part of modern philosophy — a tool for thinking about everything from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability. Explaining formal logic in simple, non-technical terms, this edition includes new sections on mathematical algorithms, axioms, and proofs.

The Foundations of Mathematics

Second Edition


Ian Stewart, David Tall

March 2015

The transition from school to university mathematics is seldom straightforward. Students are faced with a disconnect between the algorithmic and informal attitude to mathematics at school, versus a new emphasis on proof, based on logic, and a more abstract development of general concepts, based on set theory. This book bridges the divide.

How to Think About Analysis


Lara Alcock

September 2014

Analysis is a core subject in most undergraduate mathematics degrees. It is elegant, clever and rewarding to learn, but it is hard. Even the best students find it challenging, and those who are unprepared often find it incomprehensible at first. This book aims to ensure that no student need be unprepared.
