Elementary Logic

Program(s): Undergraduate Courses, Summer College

*Taught Online for Summer 2021 An introduction to the concepts and principles of symbolic logic. We learn the syntax and semantics of truth-functional and first-order quantificational logic, and apply the resultant conceptual framework to the analysis of valid and invalid arguments, the structure of formal languages, and logical relations among sentences of ordinary discourse. Occasionally we will venture into topics in philosophy of language and philosophical logic, but our primary focus is on acquiring a facility with symbolic logic as such.

Course Considerations

Strong analytical skills needed; math and computer science grades can be more useful here than would usually come into play for philosophy courses. Attendance at every class meeting is required.
