Website of Professor Adam Morton, Phd Philosophy

Adam Morton (1945-2020) was a philosopher whose work spanned the gamut of professional philosophy, logic and epistemology, philosophy of language and mind, ethics, and the philosophy of emotions. President of the Aristotelean Society from 1989 to 1999, he was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Through his carreer he worked at Princeton, Ottawa, Bristol, Oklahoma, Alberta, and UBC. He worked on epistemology, philosophy of mind, ethics (evil), and wrote textbooks.
This is his personal and professional website, largely untouched from how Adam originally created it.

logic text: Searching for Logic

- what is unusual about it

- Word version

-  pdf version

-  epub version
(may miss some corrections inserted into the PDF)  

-  kindle version
  (On some web browsers you may find that clicking this link opens a garbled version of the file on screen. If this happens you should right click on the link and select "save link as". It will then download to your computer.)

I would suggest that students get the PDF as well as whichever file is best for their e-readers. And that only instructors look at the Word file, given its size, when they wish to adapt or extract something. I would also suggest, in fact urge, that if you use this material for a course you put the files on the course website, so that this little site does not get choked with traffic.

Corrections of typos and factual errors, etc. are in the Word and PDF versions. The two E-reader versions were made from the mid-November PDF, and may not incorporate all corrections. (But the differences are insignificant.)
