Kant authorized, but did not write, this book towards the end of his life, giving the job to a former student. Basically, it is a textbook for logic classes, not an exposition of Kant's Critical programme. Almost half of this edition is devoted to an introduction by the translators and to critical apparati.

For me, The Logic is a reminder of Dartmouth and of Charles Stone, a former U.T.S. colleague who had graduated to become a librarian at the College. Being poor myself, he was kind enough to invite me up to Hanover, NH several times--a cheap vacation from Manhattan. Since Charles would work days, I would hang out at this fantastic cafe near campus which served both coffee (for afternoons) and beer (for evenings after a day of reading, but sometimes alternated with cups of coffee) and seemed to be run by a German woman who had, appropriately enough, a German shepherd with free run of the place.
