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.

Review 1 for The Discovery of Deduction: An Introduction to Formal Logic
great content but wordy

I think this text is technically very useful as it covers the basics of formal logic in a comprehensive manner. My major concern is the amount of text (a small font is used) if this book is aimed at the 12 - 15 year old age group, especially if the group is not academically strong. A lot of students will be put of just because of the amount of text they are presented with. I think this textbook is an excellent resource for a teacher or someone wishing to teach themselves. I would not recommend it for use with children in the 12-15 year old age group unless they are great readers and motivated academically.
