Logic B - The Languages of Logic


There are no classes currently available for registration.


Our Logic B - The Languages of Logic short course introduces further fundamental logical ideas that philosophers need in their toolboxes in order to reason well. It includes an introduction to a second logical language, the Predicate Calculus, which allows us to assess arguments too subtle for the Sentence Calculus to handle.

You must complete Logic A - the Philosopher's Toolbox before enrolling on this course.

This course is assessed by a take-home exercise (50%) and an unseen end-of-term examination (50%).

This can be taken as a standalone short course or as a part of:

15 credits at level 4
