Logic is an important tool in the analysis and presentation of arguments. It investigates whether assumptions imply conclusions, independently of their truth or falsity and independently of their subject matter. This book aims to apply the traditional methods of logic to contemporary theories of problem-solving and computer programming.
As an introduction to logic, the book differs from others in its use of the clausal form of logic. This has several advantages. Clausal form is simpler than the standard form of logic but is just as powerful. It is simple enough to be introduced directly, without the usual preliminary study of propositional logic, and it bears greater resemblance than standard form to other formalisms used in data processing and computer programming.
This book is not concerned with the mathematics of logic but with its applications. For an interesting and more thorough discussion of the relationships between logic and language the reader is advised to consult the books by Quine  and Hodges .
