Logical Forms Reviews

"This book provides a valuable philosophical accompaniment to the study of elementary formal logic, demonstrating the role of logical analysis in philosophy. The second edition takes account of new work from the last decade, and presents the old material with even greater clarity." Dorothy Edgington, University of Oxford "Logical Forms is written in a way that makes the dry, abstract problems of philosophical logic accessible. It is one of the best books of its kind and is thoroughly recommended." Francis Moorcroft, University of Hull, THES, 1/6/01
