The best books on Logic

Recommended by Tom Stoneham in an interview by Nigel Warburton at Five Books.

"When struggling with the paradoxes we seem to have reached or even transgressed the limits of thinking.

Wittgenstein’s book [Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus] is about how we understand the thinkable and the unthinkable, which is a traditional philosophical problem. In this book, Wittgenstein approaches the problem from the point of view of formal logic."

See Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, in Great Books of the Western World (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 55.
