Más interesante por su carácter histórico que por sus méritos pedagógicos, "El juego de la lógica" desgrana los rudimentos de la lógica aristotélica a través de numerosos ejercicios. Carroll, esta vez en su faceta como matemático, presenta la silogística a través de juegos y una ingeniosa representación gráfica que constituye, sin duda, el principal logro de este volumen.
I smiled ear to ear throughout the time I read this book and I felt like an utter idiot. I love the way Carroll writes, like a sweetly admonishing adult overseeing your homework but he does not patronize the reader, perhaps he does ever so slightly, but you sort of feel like playing along with it. The concepts of logic are pretty rudimentary but it is the charming narrative that makes this book just wonderful.

As an excursion into classical logic and introduction to it's place in rational argument this was fantastic. It gives clear explanation to the terminology used and as clearly as possible explains the material under study.

If you come ready to be challenged and keen to learn you cannot help but benefit, however readers be warned those who come expecting a nice easy read will not be able to make the most of the text.

This book is heavily reliant on the illustrations, not automatically a bad thing bu

Livre prise de tête.... Tête plein de confusion à la lecture. *_*
J'ai appris à faire un peu plus marcher mon cerveau en cette période de vacances mais sans plus...Je crois qu'il faut un QI plus élevé que le mien pour appréhender sereinement cet ouvrage. Et dire qu'il était adressé à des enfants/ados, en plus des adultes, à sa publication.

I struggled with this book on the ,especially the more complex arguments because it didn't come with illustrations but line diagrams using ASCII characters that didn't format properly. This hindered understanding a great deal. I wouldn't bother with it unless you can get a fully illustrated edition.
I would have given this book zero stars if it was possible. For something with Logic in the title this was the most confusing book that I have ever read with all its x could be y but x could also not be y. I couldn't make head nor tail of this and didn't enjoy it at all...

Un libro de lógica! Tendría que haber descubierto este libro cuando cursé lógica y no 10 años después, en ese momento lo hubiera aprovechado más, estoy seguro.

The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.

His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.

“we can but stand aside, and let them Rush upon their Fate! There is scarcely anything of yours, upon which it is so dangerous to Rush, as your Fate. You may Rush upon your Potato-beds, or your Strawberry-beds, without doing much harm: you may even Rush upon your Balcony (unless it is a new house, built by contract, and with no clerk of the works) and may survive the foolhardy enterprise: but if you once Rush upon your FATE--why, you must take the consequences!” 1 likes
