Logic ‘ derives from Greek logike, means “possessed of reason, intellectual, dialectical,

argumentative”, from logos equivalent to “word, thought, idea, argument, account, reason,

or principle”. Logic is the study of the methods and principles used to distinguish correct

reasoning from incorrect reasoning.

The aim of the logic is to provide methods, techniques and devices which help in

differentiating right reasoning from wrong reasoning and good reasoning from bad. But it

does not mean that only those who study logic can reason correctly. However it is true that

those who study logic certainly make less errors while arguing. Knowledge of logic helps

one to face a problem in a more orderly and systematic way and in many cases makes the

solution less difficult and more certain. Like any other active field of study, it too has grown

in many directions.

III. CONTENT

What is Logic?

▪ Logic is the study of the methods and principles used to distinguish correct

reasoning from incorrect reasoning.

▪ Logic came from the Greek term: λογικε ( logike ) which means a “possessed of

reason, intellectual, dialectical, argumentative”

▪ Aristotle considered Logic as the “organon” or the tool or instrument of the

sciences

▪ Deductive – This type of reasoning provides complete evidence of the truth of its

conclusion. It uses a specific and accurate premise that leads to a specific and

accurate conclusion.

▪ Inductive - This type of reasoning is "bottom up," meaning that it takes specific

information and makes a broad generalization that is considered probable,

allowing for the fact that the conclusion may not be accurate.

Example of Deductive and Inductive Logic

Deductive Logic

▪ All squares are rectangles. All rectangles have four sides. Logic, therefore, tells

you that all squares have four sides.

Inductive Logic

▪ An umbrella prevents you from getting wet in the rain. Ashley took her umbrella

and she did not get wet.

Kinds of Logic

▪ Formal Logic - The conceptual patterns or structures needed for a valid and correct

argument or inference. It deals with the correct patterns of argumentation.

produced. For an argument to work, the conclusion must logically follow the premises and

the premises must be true.

- also known as pure logic. It is responsible for determining what are the

correct and valid ways of thinking and drawing conclusions.

Example:

All men are mortal but Pedro is a man. Therefore Pedro is mortal

▪ Material Logic - the branch of logic that focuses on the content of reasoning.
