Elementary lessons in logic: deductive and inductive by William Stanley Jevons( Book )

213 editions published between 1870 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In preparing these Lessons I have attempted to show that Logic, even in its traditional form, can be made a highly useful subject of study, and a powerful means of mental exercise. With this view I have avoided the use of superfluous technical terms, and have abstained from entering into questions of a purely speculative or metaphysical character. For the puerile illustrations too often found in works on Logic I have generally substituted examples drawn from the distinct objects and ideas treated in the natural and experimental sciences; and in this and other respects have aimed at rendering these Lessons a suitable companion to a series of science school books. These Lessons I trust will introduce to the science many who have not leisure or inclination to read more elaborate treatises, and many who would not be attracted by the numerous but somewhat dry and brief compendiums published in past years. It is desirable that Lessons in Logic should be made the basis of many exercises, and for this purpose I have supplied abundance of questions and examples at the end of the book, some of which are selected from the examination papers of the Oxford"--Preface.

The principles of science; a treatise on logic and scientific method by William Stanley Jevons( Book )

127 editions published between 1874 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I endeavor to show that hypothetical anticipation of nature is an essential part of inductive inquiry, and that it is the Newtonian method of deductive reasoning combined with elaborate experimental verification, which has led to all the great triumphs of scientific research. In attempting to give an explanation of this view of Scientific Method, I discuss such topics as logic, the theory of probability, the phenomena of nature, observation, experimentation, hypothesis, and inference."
