Hi, I’m Matt Knachel, Senior Lecturer in the Philosophy Dept. at UW-Milwaukee. I’m the guy Kristin Woodward mentioned who’s writing a logic textbook. It’s designed for what’s often called an “informal” logic class, but as any philosophy teachers out there know, that’s a bit of a misleading title (not least because it’s traditional in such course to cover Aristotelian Logic, the world’s first formal logic. Here’s a link to the page where we’re posting it, one chapter at a time as I’m writing it: Fundamental Methods of Logic
Nice to meet you! Thanks for joining The Rebus Community.
We look forward to being of help as this project progresses.
Marketing & Operations Manager,
Hi @knachel … great … we’re working out collaborative processes to help projects like yours. For instance, getting chapters or books proofread, reviewed etc…
I wonder if you might consider helping us figure this out with another philosophy book (Intro to Philosophy), you can find some info about the project here:
If you are interested, you can just post in that forum thread. There’s no commitment, until we’ve started parcelling out tasks, at which time project participants can put their hands up to do small things (such as proofreading a chapter) or larger things (such as contributing a chapter).
@hugh @knachel hi there – our project is more advanced, but what might be helpful is Cathal Wood’s open critical thinking text https://sites.google.com/site/anintroductiontoreasoning/
Rob Loftis has combined parts of it with PD Magnus’s forallx formal logic intro: https://forallxremix.org/
