Classical & Nonclassical Logics,
August 2005, Princeton University
Classical logic is just one of the many
kinds of reasoning present in everyday thought;

"the exposition is solid and successfully clarifies topics that traditionally are difficult to understand by a novice. ...

else can visualize it either.

"Every once in a while a book comes along that so
effectively redefines an educational enterprise -- in
this case, graduate mathematical training -- and so
effectively reexamines the hegemony of ideas prevailing
in a discipline -- in this case, mathematical analysis --
that it deserves our careful attention. This is such a
book. There is nothing else remotely similar to
it in any of the current books on integration,
real analysis, set theory, or any other related subject. ..."
