PHRL 21001 Traditional Logic

GE-Human Culture: Philosophy Having clear ideas, putting them in order, and avoiding mistakes in reasoning is how Lewis Carroll defined logic. We will study Aristotelian logic as giving rules for our commonsense way of thinking. You will learn the three acts of understanding and how to avoid common mistakes in reasoning. Since this is the logic found on most standardized exams it is especially helpful for students planning on graduate programs in law, business, medicine, and other fields.
