Product Description

“My chief objection to a quarrel,” G.K. Chesterton wrote, “is that it ends a good argument.”

A one-semester or yearlong course for grades 8-12

The Discovery of Deduction is recommended for students who have studied informal fallacies, such as those taught in The Art of Argument: An Introduction to the Informal Fallacieshowever, the text does also stand on its own as an independent study of formal logic. The Discovery of Deduction: An Introduction to Formal Logic will welcome your students into the fascinating realm of formal, deductive logic. Formal logic studies how an argument is put together—the form or structure of an argument.

The Discovery of Deduction is geared directly toward students as young as 8th grade, making a subject usually reserved for study in college accessible and relevant to middle and high school, logic-stage students. The book emphasizes the practical and real-world application of soundly structured deductive logic. Using methods such as Socratic dialogue, ample discussion, and integration of other subjects, the book teaches formal logic in the best way for dialectic students. The Discovery of Deduction is recommended after a study of informal fallacies, such as The Art of Argument: An Introduction to the Informal Fallacies; however, the text stands on its own as an independent study of formal logic.
