Introduction to Modern Logic
Discussion

Introduction to Modern Logic
Logic is concerned with good reasoning; as such, it stands at the core of the liberal arts. In this course, we will develop our reasoning skills by identifying, analyzing, and criticizing arguments found in philosophical, legal, and other texts, and also by formulating our own arguments. We will then use the formal techniques of modern propositional and predicate logic to codify and regiment various reasoning strategies. No prior knowledge of logic, formal mathematics, or computer science is presupposed in this course, which does not count towards the PHL distribution requirement but instead towards the deductive reasoning requirement. 3 hrs. lect., 1 hr. disc.
