WHAT IS LOGIC? 

The etymology of the word “logic” is the Greek word logos, which is translated as “discourse”, “sentence”, “rule”, and “reason”. However, the direct translation of the word isn't how the word “logic” is used today. So, what is logic? Originally it meant “word”, or “what is spoken,” but has come to mean “thought,” or “reason”. In general, it is a subject that is concerned with the most general laws of truth. 

While there is no universal agreement on exactly what subject matter should be included in logic, within the scope of this blog, we will cover the classification of arguments along with their associated structural terminology, logical fallacies, and, most importantly, what makes a good argument. 

My hope is that you will incorporate the logic you learn here into your everyday life. Whether it comes to simple household problem solving, casual conversations with friends, or formulating a political worldview for yourself, logic will assist in the process. In short, the logical skills learned here will enhance your critical thinking ability.
