Welcome to Oxford’s Introduction to Logic online, a companion to Paul Herrick’s new text for logic courses. This site will guide you through the key points of the book.
In About the Book you will be able to:
The Open Course Library Logic Class
Many, many more logic problems with answers, covering every chapter in the textbook, are available in the free online logic course that my colleague, Mark Storey (Bellevue College), and I created for the Open Course Library. What is this? With generous support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the State of Washington Board for Community and Technical Colleges selected eighty-one community college faculty members and gave them the task of creating an online library of complete online courses in nearly every introductory subject in the community college curriculum. The online classes in the Open Course Library are freely available to any teacher or student who wants to use them. The Open Course Library logic class, which Mark and I created, currently entitled “Philosophy 106,” may thus be used as an additional resource to help you master the concepts covered in Introduction to Logic. (The online course that we created may also be used to supplement any logic course taught with a standard logic text.) Your teacher has the relevant information.
The Many Worlds of Logic Website
In addition to the Open Course Library logic course described above, you will find further self-tests, a general overview of logic, philosophical arguments that you can analyze and debate, and various materials for advanced study in logical theory at the following website: www.manyworldsoflogic.com. Once here, click on “Practice Quizzes with Answers” (at the top) for practice problems that can help build understanding. This website can serve as a general supplement to any logic course.
