In this course, you will learn the basic concepts of logical analysis and how to use them in evaluating arguments, with the help of two systems of notation. The languages of Propositional Logic and Predicate Logic will be introduced. You will learn to represent propositions of English in symbolic notation; and use these to identify logical relationships, test for valid arguments and find counterexamples. Logical notation is used widely in philosophy, computer science and mathematics. This course is a foundation for further study in logic as part of either the Philosophy major or the Logic and Computation major.
