"This is an excellent collection of articles covering the main
areas of philosophical logic, written by front-line,
internationally known researchers in the field. It should be
available in every serious library."
Dov Gabbay, King's College, London
"This volume on philosophical logic is a welcome and manageable
resource. The editor is to be congratulated both on his choice of
material and on his choice of collaborators. The result is a
well-balanced mix of authoritative overviews of classical
mathematical logic and up-to-date accounts of topics in linguistics
and computer science."
Krister Segerberg, Uppsala University
"These twenty chapters cover the areas of logic of greatest
interest to philosophers, and also to computer scientists,
linguists, and cognitive scientists. They are written by
world-class authorities in their fields and give comprehensive and
definitive introductions to their subjects."
Ernie Lepore, Rutgers University
"For those interested in the philosophy of logic an excellent
place to turn would be The Blackwell Guide to Philosophical
Logic edited by Lou Goble. The book consists of 20 specially
written essays by distinguished figures in the field, each with an
Times higher Education Supplement
"The intended readership is philosophers and logicians, but
there is much that will be of interest to computer scientists,
cognative scientists and theoretical linguists. The Book is
accessible to non-experts and experts will find much substance in
