Applied Logic presents logic as a relevant tool for interpreting arguments, not simply as an abstract discipline such as mathematics or physics. Through English-language arguments that are debated today-health care, economic problems, AIDS, and so on-the author strives to give students an appreciation of logic's applicability. An appendix provides answers to selected exercises. Applied Logic and the Instructor's Manual will be of great value to those teaching elementary logic.
