BLURBS

 I found this collection utterly absorbing from beginning to end. It combines some very segacious ideas with some choice bits that are delightfully funny.

-Raymond M. Smullyan, New York

“If I were you, I would buy this book.” What does that mean? It means, “buy this book.” Why does it mean that? Perhaps this book will help you understand. Or perhaps not, but it will certainly be entertaining reading in the meantime.
– Melvin Fitting, City University of New York

 

ABSTRACT

Every day logic surrounds us. Used and abused at coctail parties and dinner functions, in friendly conversations and verbal feuds, in science, in thinking and reflecting, logic is a tool of mind. It is the language of thought. Logic is very human and concerns us all, even if it is not always used by man.

Logical Lyrics: From Philosophy to Poetics is a collection of citations and aphorisms from all sorts of people – from Napoleon Bonaparte to Human League – expressing their embracing, critical and humorous views on logic and logical matters.

Logical Lyrics is an independent follow-up to Feisty Fragments: For Philosophy.
