Section Description

This course is an introduction to the basic principles of formal logic.. Formal logic attempts to abstract from the particular content of propositions and sentences to analyze the logical form of these sentences, the implication relations between them and with a view toward evaluating the arguments constructed from them. The ultimate goal is to use these techniques and principles to learn to reason carefully, clearly and logically. Along the way, we will apply these techniques and principles to various problems and concepts of general logic and philosophy. Course Objectives The successful student will be able to: Identify the basic principles of formal logic. Learn to evaluate arguments for validity and soundness. Translate ordinary language arguments into the appropriate logical language. Define and identify the basic principles of logical inference and apply them to examples. Learn to reason carefully, clearly and logically. Required Texts You must purchase the digital text edition of Hurley's Concise Introduction to Logic, 13th Edition, linked in the course. All readings, exercises, tests, and additional learning material are made available in this digital text.
