Theorist identified these forms of poor reasoning as “fallacies” (Woodard et al., 2014, p. 93).

    Logic, as it appears in its everyday form, seems to stand on its own, without any requirements to needed to justify its existence. However, it is commonly overlooked that "logic is the science and means of clear . . . communication." Consequently, many sentences are regarded as logical, which in reality are illogical. It can therefore be found that the language used to communicate this logic must be carefully constructed using a certain format in order to form a logical statement. The requirements

    Without the combined use of perception, emotion, logic, and language, my ability to pursue knowledge and gain an understanding of the world around me is limited. For me, measuring the success of the pursuit of knowledge is based on the fact that I am able to comprehend knowledge from multiple viewpoints, and not be restricted to a certain way of thinking. In Maslow’s quote, being only restricted to one tool, or way of knowing, is an issue for me to pursue knowledge because of the restrictions and

James Madison was the fourth president of the United States and is one of the founding fathers of the United States.

    mathematics. Logicism holds that Mathematics is logic. This means that logic is the foundation of mathematics and all mathematical statements are logical truths. Although the idea of logicism can be associated to Leibniz, it is Gottlob Frege who is considered the founder of Logicism since it was in his time when the principles of logic were revealed. He built a logistic program and devoted much of his time trying to show that mathematics can be reduced to logic. Un...

    Philosophy in a simple language means love for wisdom and I think everybody loves wisdom but not all people are aware about the importance of Philosophy and its role in shaping the better society. As most people I also was not aware about the importance and gravity of philosophy as well. In fact, I always thought philosophy was a pretty inconsequential and vague subject until I took the philosophy course this semester. My perceptions and thoughts about the subject has changed significantly afterwards

    the contrary, included within the One. The logic by which the One includes the Many is a logic of manifold unity, or, as Hegel quite confidently puts it, true infinity as opposed to spurious infinity. I will argue that such a logic of inclusive infinity is operative in Hartshorne, Hegel and Nishida. Each uses different terminology and writes with different systemic emphases, but as applied to God or the Ultimate, the function and consequences of the logic of inclusivity are strikingly similar for

    are no rules with informal logic. Examples of informal logic surround us everyday. An informal fallacy can be identified only by analyzing the content of an argument so it can affect inductive and deductive arguments. There is also formal logic which is the type that it referred to more in philosophy. It is powerful while analyzing an argument but could only be effective when all parties agree to the premises so if there is a disagreement over premises then informal logic will come into play.

    principles and that the meaning of objects, persons or texts is inherent in the thing itself. Humanism is founded on dichotomous logic and rationality, their reasoning is objective. Contrastingly post-structuralism is more concerned with meaning making that is contextually specific through the effect of cultural and social relations. It diminishes the ideals of dichotomous logic and the universalising of texts, objects and persons. This essay will critically analyse the competing arguments of each perspective

    reason George Boole was my choice for my mathematician. I have always been fascinated by logic and reasoning, possibly because I constantly find myself in arguments which I prefer to call friendly debates.

    According to La Croix, Frankfurt holds that, in claiming that God created the eternal truths and could have done the opposite with respect to establishing the law of contradiction, Descartes conceived of God’s power as extending beyond the laws of logic. For Descartes to take such a stand, according to Frankfurt, is to have his notion of God’s omnipotence be open to the charge of being incoherent. La Croix says that Descartes’ view might in fact be incoherent, but it is for reasons other than entailing

    Lekta & the Dialectic The scope of Stoic logic encompasses various aspects of their philosophy and serves as the primary method through which the rest of their opinions about the world are shaped. Stoic logic is easily divisible into two realms, the realm of the dialectic, and that of rhetoric. Rhetoric, with all its breadth and superfluity, seems less valuable to Stoic logic than the more simplistic dialectic. For the Stoics, the wise man is always the dialectician, for the dialectic distinguishes
