Logic can be your secret weapon.

Studying formal logic can be intimidating without the right help, but knowing how to think logically isn't just for "experts."

Our easy-to-read layout comes with summaries, key points, definitions, and cautions so you learn and keep an understanding of logic.

It's the tool for learning how to use other tools.

It's the bones that give a clenched fist its structure (and knuckles).

Introductory Logic is perfect for Grade 7+ students, teachers, and parents who've never tackled syllogisms or fallacies before. It provides a semester or year's worth of logic to help you detect and deflect flawed or deceitful arguments and to think, debate, and argue well.

The complete Introductory Logic video course is available for streaming with a subscription to Canon+. Visit to learn more.

    Inside Introductory Logic

      • Think logically when you can write true and false statements. (Unit 2—Statements and Their Relationships)

          We think Logic is Great

          We ordered the Introductory Logic curriculum as an addition to the logic course my daughter is taking in her homeschool classes. She started with the video series on the Canon App and really wanted to purchase the curriculum to work through as well. Her other Logic series, which mainly focuses on fallacies, is great, however the Introductory Logic is a good place to start, because exactly as the title describes, it is an introduction to it all and is especially helpful if a person is new to the subject of Logic. Thank you for making this series available; many blessings to the Canon Press crew as you faithfully continue to put out content for hungry minds.
