PHI 2100 Introduction to Logic

This course covers logic with an emphasis on deductive logic, explores the basic principles of categorical logic, truth functional logic (propositional logic), and limited topics in predicate logic. The first part of the course focuses on the basic principles of the subject, such as validity, soundness, strength, cogency, definition, and paraphrase, and explores the traditional (i.e., Aristotelian) treatment of deductive arguments. The second part of the course explores the concepts of modern, symbolic logic.
