Welcome to Logic! Logic is a wonderful subject taught in both mathematics and philosophy departments the world over. Thus, Logic is one of the most intensively studied inter-disciplinary areas of inquiry. But what is logic? The single-handed most important concept in all of logic is inference. Two examples: If it is raining, then it is wet. All humans are mortal It is raining. Socrates is human In each case, what can be inferred? If you cannot see the inference, do not fret. By the end of the semester you will neither have trouble solving such problems nor understanding why the inferences work. Logic asks “What follows from what? Why?”
