Bottom of the page for sure.
It is through the Philosophy department.
And yeah, I know. It's been one of my goals to learn math for a while now, but like I said, I'm lazy.
I was supposed to study math so I could do well enough on the placement test to get into college level Algebra. But I'm lazy as hell and didn't study. Logic fulfills the math requirement.
I'm guessing what it really breaks down to is the fact that this is an Intro class at a CC. He's stated multiple times there won't be any trick questions or anything like that, and not to think too...
Too advanced for my class, so far anyway.
I am a doctor.
Thus I am a doctor.
Is an argument in our class. As long as it's a series of statements (a statement is a sentence that is true or...
I'd think you're wrong here. We don't care if Joe exists or not. As long as the premises lead to the conclusion making a valid argument, it doesn't matter to us what the premises and conclusion are....
I need a precursor to anything I say, with that being "we learned in class," so keep that in mind too whenever I say anything. That being said:
Would "x is tall" be a statement? Or is that an...
I think the biggest thing to keep in mind whenever I mention my Logic class is that it's an Introductory class at a Community College.
Like I said, I'm liking it so far. I like how he runs the class too. Like every time he says "statement" we're supposed to say in our heads "a statement is a sentence that is true or false" (and to...
I've heard good things, and they're on my list. But I haven't actually read any yet.
We've already learned that would be a valid argument. The way we've learned it (breaking it down the way we've done in class) is this:
A statement is a sentence that is true or false.
I really don't know. Here is the overview of what we're going to learn:
1) Fundamental Definitions
3) Testing for Validity with Truth Tables
4) Five More Fundamental...
I'm glad I took the Intro class so that I know a little about it. And I guess there might be a couple certain areas of it I'll revisit sometime. But for the most part I'm not interested in it.
Just not interested in Philosophy.
I don't think we're going beyond truth tables in this class.
I'm liking Logic so far. I still hate Philosophy though.
We haven't gotten into anything really yet though, mainly just definitions and whatnot setting up the groundwork for the rest of the class.
We've only had two classes so far. Basically the only thing we've learned is what an argument is, and that there is a lot of help available for the course.
This one is for you CK:

Just finished The Martian. I liked it.
I'm about halfway through it since I've seen it mentioned a bunch. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Not quite sure if it's your type of book though.
Student: Pluto is a planet again since people signed a petition.
Teacher: Oh, good. I don't know how they can just decide something isn't a planet for no reason.
