Are there “laws of thought” just as surely as there is a law of gravity?  The answer is a resounding “yes!”  This course explores those basic “laws of thought” that will help students better understand how we can discover truths, and how we can better communicate truths to others.  Students will study forms of correct thinking, using traditional Aristotelian tools such as formal proofs and truth tables.  Students will also be conversant in the common logical fallacies to avoid.  Through many formal and informal debates, students will have many opportunities to apply their logical skills.  While learning logic helps students to win arguments, students will be reminded throughout that the ultimate purpose of studying logic is to learn how to love God with all of our minds.
