"Logic! What do they teach them in these schools?" So despairs Professor Kirke in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.
Sadly, students are not routinely taught how to reason and deploy logic as they are, how to read English or solve a quadratic equation - all too often, we rely on intuition. Yet logic is not always intuitive and, even when it is, being aware of the process of reasoning helps us make better arguments, as well as evaluate others' more efficiently.
This book is designed to take students through the basics of logic up to the point of being able to analyse longer pieces of philosophical writing, and construct essays.
Complete with short exercises, A Donkey Is Not A Carrot is recommended for anyone who wants to know how it is we know that equines are not vegetables.
