Libro de lógica más leído y respetado después del Órganon de Aristóteles. Se encuentran los principios fundamentales del razonamiento correcto ( )
  hernanvillamil | Dec 30, 2019 |
The book begins with an introduction of the very basic terminology - propositions, premises, and conclusions. It might sound very naive to start this low, but it helped me to refer back to the precise definitions of these words while reading through the rest of the chapters.

Written in plain and simple language, the book covers a breadth of concepts from categorization of fallacies to Venn diagrams to necessary and sufficient conditions. Some of these were new to me while others were a pleasant revival. The exercises and puzzles throughout the book reinforce your understanding of what you just read.

Most of the book concentrates on deductive and inductive reasoning and the author did an excellent job in convincing that they were most crucial components of any logical discussion. I found the last few chapters - Analogical Reasoning through Science and Hypothesis, very interesting. However the chapter on Probability could be better by discussing more real-world scenarios. ( )

A college textbook that was used by many colleges and universities for many years. I still review it from time to time. ( )

HOW THE ART OF REASONING IS NECESSARY

When one of his audience said, “Convince me that logic is useful,” he said,

Would you have me demonstrate it?

“Yes.”

Well, then, must I not use a deomonstrative argument?

And, when the other agreed, he said, How then shall you know if I impose upon you? And when the man had no answer, he said, You see how you yourself admit that logic is necessary, if without it you are not even able to learn this much — whether it is necessary or not.
— Discourses of Epictetus

There are obvious benefits to be gained from the study of logic: heightened ability to express ideas clearly and concisely, increased skill in defining one's terms, enlarged capacity to formulate arguments rigorously and to analyze them critically. But the greatest benefit, in my judgment, is the recognition that reason can be applied in every aspect of human affairs.
[From the "Preface" to Irving M. Copi's Introduction to Logic, 5th ed. (1953/1978: vii)]
1.1 What Is Logic?

Logic is the study of the methods and principles used to distinguish good (correct) from bad (incorrect) reasoning. This definition must not be taken to imply that only the student of logic can reason well or correctly. To say so would be as mistaken as to say that to run well requires studying the physics and physiology involved in that activity. Some excellent athletes are quite ignorant of the complex processes that go on inside themselves when they perform. And, needless to say, the somewhat elderly professors who know most about such things would perform very poorly were they to risk their dignity on the athletic field. Even given the same basic muscular and nervous apparatus, the person who knows might not surpass the “natural athlete.”
[From "Introduction", chapter 1 of Irving M. Copi's Introduction to Logic, 5th ed. (1953/1978: 3–4)]
