Principles of Logic
by George Hayward Joyce
Publisher: Longmans 1908
Number of pages: 464
This work is an attempt at a presentment of what is frequently termed the Traditional Logic, and is intended for those who are making acquaintance with philosophical questions for the first time.

Logic, as the theory of the mind's rational processes in regard of their validity, must necessarily be part of a larger philosophical system.
