Welcome

For over 2,000 years, a course in logic has been considered an essential component of a university education. And for good reason: The study of logic will sharpen your intellect and expand your thinking. This website accompanies and supplements the standard logic class taught at most colleges and universities.

What is Logic?

Logic is the study of the principles of correct reasoning. The principles of logic are universal guides to correct reasoning, just as the rules of arithmetic are universal guides to correctly adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers. You can improve your reasoning by studying the principles of logic, just as you can improve your number-crunching abilities by studying the principles of mathematics. Because correct reasoning can be applied to any subject matter whatsoever, the number of potential applications of logical theory is practically unlimited.
