Formal Logic

Publisher: Wikibooks

Description:
An undergraduate college level textbook covering first order predicate logic with identity but omitting metalogical proofs. Formal Logic is a study of inference with purely formal content. The first rules of formal logic were written over 2300 years ago by Aristotle and are still vital to many modern disciplines like Linguistics and Computer Science.
