Logic is typically understood as the systematic and rigorous study of inference and argument — the science of figuring out what follows from what, and why. Formal logic does this by thinking about systems of inference in a mathematical way. We will build on this idea. But logicians aren't just in Mathematics and Philosophy departments anymore. Logic has become an important tool across disciplines. So we will set ourselves two goals: understanding the basic tools of formal logic, and understanding how those tools are developed, extended, and deployed to shed light on problems in philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.
