High School Logic 1: Introduction to Logic (University of Saint Katherine Dual Enrollment Course)

Logic is a tool indispensable not just to philosophers and mathematicians but to all who seek to reason well and argue cogently in any field. To master the basics of logical reasoning is to become a more precise thinker — to learn how to critique others’ attempts at persuasion, identify and avoid common fallacies, and construct a proper argument of one’s own. With this as our goal, we will approach the study of logic historically, beginning with the Socratic method and progressing through Aristotelian syllogistic logic, Stoic propositional logic, 19thcentury contributions to categorical logic and invention of formal languages, and modern truth-functional logic. In the second semester we will study modern predicate logic and look briefly at modal logic.

To high school students taking this course for dual enrollment credit, the University of St. Katherine will issue a transcript with 3 college credits per semester.  USK credits are transferable to other colleges and universities.

Fall 2020 Registration for this Course Opens on February 27.
