Philosophy | Introductory Symbolic Logic
P250 | 3390 | Toribio


Logic's main concern is with the validity of arguments.  The course is
an introduction to modes of logically assessing arguments making as
precise as possible the conditions under which they are acceptable.
Students with learn to identify, analyze and evaluate arguments as
expressed both in natural and formal languages.  The aim of the course
regarding the formal approach (which constitutes the core of the
course) is to provide the student with a good working knowledge of
both sentential calculus and quantification theory  - the foundations
upon which modern symbolic logic sii built.  Emphasis is placed on the
development of formal proof techniques.
