This repository/directory only contains the LaTeX files and illustrations needed to typeset the textbook Intermediate logic, which in turn requires the Open Logic Text.

To install and compile:

  • Download/install the Open Logic Text from GitHub, including photos if you want those.
  • Navigate to the subdirectory courses/
  • Put the content of this repository into a subdirectory of it, say courses/intermediate-logic.

If you use git, this should do it:

# git clone https://github.com/OpenLogicProject/OpenLogic.git
# cd OpenLogic/courses
# git clone https://github.com/rzach/intermediate-logic.git
# cd ../assets
# git clone https://github.com/OpenLogicProject/portraits.git
# git clone https://github.com/OpenLogicProject/photos.git

Inside courses/intermediate-logic, you can now compile:

# pdflatex il-screen

or just # make if you have latexmk installed. (You’ll also have to do bibtex il-screen for the bibliography.)

The file il-screen.tex produces a color version of the text with smaller margins for screen reading. il-print produces a black-and-white version designed for printing on Crown Quarto stock (without cover).

The file loads ic.tex, which contains the actual material. It in turn includes other files, most of them from the OpenLogic repository. So you won’t get a complete book unless you download into the right subdirectory of and compile from there.
