About the Course
Formal Logic is often defined as a system of rules that are used to determine the validity of propositions. This is a form of deductive reasoning often used in the form of syllogisms or even mathematical proofs. Students in this class will learn what forms a sound argument and how to assess arguments for rational merit and cogency. Aspects of the class will explore formal logical arguments made during the founding of the United States as well as formal logical arguments through the history of Christianity.
The textbook that will be used is The Discovery of Deduction (Student Edition) – Classical Academic Press
