Subject Area: Philosophy

Logic is a wonderful achievement of the human mind. The development of logic as the study of argument and the way premises support conclusions was part and parcel of the development of philosophy. Logic is our attempt at reflecting on how we think, and our attempt to describe what it is like to think well. The idea that human consciousness became self conscious in this way a little over two millennia ago is an inspiring and daunting realisation. This subject introduces you to an important, enduring and growing part of philosophy. You are not assumed to have any background in logic or philosophy.
