Publisher Synopsis

"Cellucci puts logic back in its place, after it was turned upside down by the drifts of AP (analytical philosophy), which pushed the search for certainty and foundations too far." (Emiliano Ippoliti, Epistemologia, Vol. 38 (2), July-December, 2015)"Well documented, closely argued, and informed by truly inspired, and truly incompatible, interpretations of the Western tradition of logic, mathematics, and metaphysics." (Emily R. Grosholz, Philosophia Mathematica, Vol. 23 (1), February, 2015)"This textbook traces the history of Logic ranging from epistemology to induction and deduction. ... I can recommend it to the philosophical audience for which it is addressed." (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, March, 2014)"Rethinking Logic is a valuable and remarkable book, especially because it does not resemble to any of the books dealing with logic which normally can be found on the market. ... It is ... a global and wide philosophical reflection on what logic and knowledge are, which argues for a theoretically purposeful view, with which one may obviously disagree, but with which it is certainly interesting confronting." (Fabio Sterpetti, Philosophical Inquiries, Vol. 2 (2), 2014) Read more...
