Philosophy | Introductory Symbolic Logic
P250 | 13483 | Savion
In this course, the student is introduced to basic notions of
reasoning and to two symbolic languages: Proposition Calculus and
Predicate Logic. The aim of this course is to help students develop
skills in translating sentences from English to formal languages and
in evaluating arguments rigorously as valid or invalid.
This course has no pre-requisites, but it covers twice the material
covered in P150, and has a fast pace. Final grade is based on
homework assignments, two tests, group work, and a final exam.
The required text is the latest edition of “Brain Power: Symbolic
Logic for the Novice” (PURPLE COVER), written by the instructor.
