What is logic?

  1. Feb 14, 2013 #1
    Does anyone honestly know what this is? I mean we use it in an argument, in the mathematical discipline every day. How can we tell something is non sense compared to logic, or if it is true and "correct" logic? What can we define to be logical, or a tautology? I think logic is a superb topic for the day, even more so since the forum is a "science" forum.

    Tenshou, the primary mission of PF is to help students with problems and projects in physics, math and other sciences. Philosophical things distract from that mission as does fringe science. If you have a problem in math or physics or some science that you need help on please ask. We aren't here to chat about something purely of interest to you.
