I have been pretty surprised to find that over four hundred people not doing my elementary first year logic course for philosophers have downloaded the slides for the first lecture. So I’ve decided to keep uploading the lecture slides here for a while — though after a time-lag — so there will be roughly two more lectures every week for a few weeks, or at least while download rates make it seem worthwhile. They aren’t very exciting: but they do serve to keep the live show basically on message! (The slides as I use them of course reveal bullet points one at a time, but I’ve suppressed that in these early lectures.)
These next two lectures are the rest of my three introductory lectures before we get down to work on PL:
If you want a bit more by way of elementary introduction at this level, read the first six chapters of my Intro. to Formal Logic (utterly splendid and amazingly cheap, it goes without saying: buy it — or at least ensure that your uni. library has the 2009 reprint)!
Comments and corrections welcome, of course.
