      Vern Poythress’s Logic is a hefty book. If you cut out the bibliography and the indices, it still clocks in at 708 pages. As such, it’s hard to review it all in one go. I’m going to try though by listing the things I particularly liked about this book and the areas in which I felt it fell short.Pros-This book gives a breathtaking picture of the breadth of Logic in ways that other Introductory texts that I have read do not.-It is written from a theologically Reformed, presuppositional persp [...]

      This was a great, but long book (700ish pages) on Logic. Dr. Poythress attempts to not only explain and teach formal logic in all it's variations from Boolean logic to computational logic but he also grounds it in biblical presuppositions. For example he will teach the Barbara syllogistic formAll A's are B'sAll B's are C'sTherefore all C's are A'sThen he will give an example of where to find that form of Logic in the gospels. He also goes onto teach very complex issues of logic like Godel's Inco [...]

      Much like asking someone what philosophy is, asking someone what logic is in a conversation will no doubt draw blank stares of confusion and bewilderment. To many people logic is the stuff mathematicians and philosophers discuss with no relevance for the man-on-the-street. Very much like philosophy, this could not be further from the truth. Logic pervades our everyday lives through our thought processes and accompanying speech. Contrary to much of secular and naturalistic understanding, logic do [...]

      Good contribution. I think it falls short as a textbook for instruction in logic because of the way it is organized and the shallow coverage of some areas.

    5. Griffingulledge says:

      How do you review a book on logic? I took logic courses while getting my B.A. in philosophy in college and tutored in the same subject during that time. Despite my knowledge of the subject (and love for it), I still wondered: How do you review a book on logic? After receiving this book from Crossway to reviews nearly a year ago (sorry, Crossway- I'm the worst!), I have asked myself that repeatedly. There are a number of things that make a review of Logic difficult.1. This book is a magisterial w [...]

    6. Ian says:

      Poythress' tome manages to be flawed yet essential at the same time. As a logic textbook, this would be entirely unworkable, even as a college text, despite the fact that exercises or review questions are dutifully appended to each chapter. As a work of philosophical theology, the format is often very odd with a profusion of short chapters. Nevertheless, this is the finest presuppositional thinking about logic, philosophy and even computation that we are likely to see in a long time, and it appr [...]
