Credits/Acknowledgements:

The online materials accessed via this page are designed to compliment lecture and other materials used in Philosophy 10, Introduction to Logic, and especially the text Basic Sentential Logic and Informal Fallacies, by Rick Grush (though they should be of use regardless of the text used). The construction of this page and the contents acccessed through it were made possible in large part through a generous grant from the UCSD Intructional Improvement Program (IIP). Thanks to Dave Miller for his help in this regard. The coding and construction was done by Rick Grush and P.D. Magnus. The content was created by Rick Grush. Students should be aware that in large part because of these materials and the grant through IIP, materials for Philosophy 10 no longer cost about $79.00 per student, but are about $30.00 per student. IIP and Dave Miller get a chunk of the thanks for the $49.00 you saved this quarter.
