Laced with humor and practical applications, Classical Academic Press strives to make logic accessible. And succeeds, too! The series has more background material than other logic books plus lots of "modern" examples. Making great use of dialogues and cartoons, there are some practice exercises but the emphasis is more on the "meat" of the text rather than on doing exercises. This sets them apart from other logic courses and makes them the perfect choice for students who want or need background information more than practice. This series is user-friendly and requires very little prep on the teacher's part although teacher-student interaction is necessary to maximize the learning. Art of Argument would be the starting place for a Jr. High student followed by Argument Builder and/or Discovery of Deduction, which can stand alone or be used together.

Each Student Text is designed to be worked in with the student thinking through and writing out responses to the material being presented. Teacher Editions are predominantly full-text answer keys but often include teacher's notes (a list of suggestions and recommendations for teaching the course) as well as ideas for supplementing and enriching the study. ~ Janice

Category Description for Discovery of Deduction:

The "let's get down to formal logic" book in the series, looking at reasoning in the abstract and focusing primarily on deductive reasoning. Through Socratic dialogue, definitional distinctions, and a sort of discussion/response format, the student is led through the study which includes a history of logic, propositions and their relationships, categorical syllogisms, and ends with terms and definitions. Appendices include Venn diagrams of syllogisms as well as an essay on handling religious, moral, and ethical disputes. Both Student and TE include Endnotes and Glossary, and Bibliography. 324 pgs. pb

The transition from informal logic to formal can be difficult for students. This course reduced the difficulty with sacrificing any quality.

Starting at age 15 with no previous logic. Would you suggest this book or Art of argument?

BEST ANSWER: Art of Argument is an introduction to some of the specifics of formal logic. Discovery of Deduction launches into formal logic. Most people would cover Art of Argument first, then Argument Builder, then Discovery of Deduction. If your student has already had some exposure to logic, you could go directly to Discovery of Deduction.
