Doch so einfach sie auf den ersten Blick scheint, so anspruchsvoll ist sie im Detail. "Logik kompakt f?r Dummies" f?hrt Sie systematisch und so einfach wie m?glich in dieses Teilgebiet von Mathematik und Philosophie ein. Dabei arbeitet Mark Zegarelli mit anschaulichen Beispielen und schafft es so, dieses abstrakte Thema nicht nur verst?ndlich zu erkl?ren, sondern auch Wert und Nutzen der Logik aufzuzeigen.
