This comprehensive introduction to symbolic logic covers informal logic and the syntax, semantics and metatheory of not only the classical propositional and predicate logics, but also for a number of extensions of classical logic and non-standard logics. It is the first textbook of this kind to provide substantive treatment of more recent developments in logic.
