The Discovery of Deduction: An Introduction to Formal Logic will introduce students to the realm of formal, deductive logic. Formal logic studies how an argument is put together-the form or structure of an argument-as well as its real-world implications. Using methods such as Socratic dialogue, ample discussion, and integration of other subjects, it teaches the ways in which these dialectic students learn best. Example scenarios, exercises, points to remember, quotes, charts, and thorough lessons will help students grasp the concepts presented, and be able to apply them! Grades 8 & up. 324 pages, softcover.
