  • Logic: A Very Short Introduction
    Logic: A Very Short Introduction (English, Paperback) Graham Priest

    Graham Priest shows that formal logic is a powerful, exciting part of modern philosophy - a tool for thinking about everything from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability. Explaining formal logic in simple, non-technical terms, this edition includes new sections on mathematical algorithms, axioms, and proofs.

  • Arithmetic
    Arithmetic (English, Hardback) Paul Lockhart

    Paul Lockhart reveals arithmetic not as the rote manipulation of numbers but as a set of ideas that exhibit the surprising behaviors usually reserved for higher branches of mathematics. In this entertaining survey, he explores the nature of counting and different number systems-Western and non-Western-and weighs the pluses and minuses of each.
