Replying to LO21531 --

At de Lange recommened a textbool on formal logic.

>If they had not previous experience
>with formal logic, begin with a textbook like "Symbolic Logic" by IM

In this context I wish to repeat my recommendation for Lisa Scheinkopfs
"Thinking for a Change".

Before going into the TOC thinking tools, she explains in detail the
basics of necessity based thinking and sufficiency based thinking and also
includes a chapter on what she calles "Categories of Legitimate
Reservations" as a way to self detect the logical fallacies in ones own
mental models.

Liebe Gruesse,
