Expanded Course Description
This course will serve as an introduction to basic symbolic or formal logic. At its completion, students will be proficient in determining the formal validity of arguments with propositional (sentence) logic and predicate logic as well as in the use of truth trees in respect to both. Though often the course will resemble a math course, and mathematical techniques will be employed virtually throughout, the purpose of the course is to inquire into the patterns of effective thought concerning potentially all manner of human interests. How do we draw correct inferences and think effectively? How do we avoid errors in reasoning and drawing unwarranted conclusions? What form does compelling evidence for thus warranted conclusions take?
