Description

This is an introductory course in logic, which will cover the basics: what a (logical) argument is, validity and soundness of arguments, checking for the consistency of sets of sentences, proving logical theorems, and “translating” ordinary-language arguments into formal languages. We will work through sentential and predicate logic, studying the syntax, semantics, and proof procedures for both.
