In the main this consists of short chapters involving either the author's exposition of his views or his criticisms of other thinkers -- the former are called "remarks" and the latter are called, on the whole "admonitions". He introduces the whole work with this book on logic because to him logic is the key to knowledge, and knowledge is the key to happiness, the highest human goal.
