Non-Classical Logic

I've just picked up a copy of the second edition of Graham Priest's An Introduction to Non-Classical Logic from the CUP bookshop. More than twice the length of the first edition which just covered propositional logics, this covers their extensions with quantifiers and identity too.

I thought the first edition was terrific: so this is a hugely welcome expansion. And I'm delighted to report that CUP has published this as a paperback in their Cambridge Introductions to Philosophy Series at just £18.99/$34.99, which is surely an amazing bargain for a well-produced 613 page book. So three cheers to the Press, and in particular to Hilary Gaskin the philosophy editor, for that!

A must-buy, and a must-read!
