Primary Instructor:

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 carefully about systems of inference: what are they good for; what choices we confront when devising them; how, if at all, can we show that we've made the right choices — that is, that our systems of inference really accomplish their aims? We will study a number of formal systems of inference, including systems meant to apply under the all-too-familiar condition of uncertainty. We will aim not only to master their details but also to think about what the nature and point of systems of logic are.
