Department of Social Sciences and Critical StudiesSchool of Liberal Arts and SciencesPratt InstituteFall 2013Course SyllabusLOGICPHIL 301, Credits: 3Monday 2-4:50pm in North Hall 112Instructor: Eric GodoyEmail: EricSGodoy@gmail.comOffice Location: DeKalb 103Skype: EricSGodoyOffice Hours: noon-2:00pm Twitter:@GodoyEricS (#PrattLogic)Course DescriptionCatalog Description: An elementary introduction to logical thinking. One-third of the course isdevoted to problems of language and semantics.Section Description: The study of logic attunes us to the structure of our thoughts andjudgments about the world. The brick and mortar of this structure is argument and reason. Wewill learn the rules of constructing good arguments, better understand why bad arguments failto stand, and learn to detect weak points in valid arguments. Much logic is intuitive—you use itall the time and probably wouldn’t have made it far today without it. Yet many times wedevelop bad habits of thought. By learning to identify common errors and with practiceconstructing and deconstructing sound arguments, the study of formal logic will help clarifyyour thinking and make you a better reasoner.Course Goals: Gain an understanding of elementary formal logic, its branches, and its uses in everydayarguments. Develop your abilities to critically evaluate arguments for validity and soundness. Develop an understanding of how arguments are constructed and establish a firmergrounding for your own judgments and beliefs about the world. Recognize the special role of reason and persuasion techniques in science, advertising,writing, and speech.Learning Objectives: Distinguish between soundness and validity and explain why each is important for goodarguments. Translate arguments between symbolic logical syntax and everyday language. Identify common logical fallacies and equivalencies. Solve proofs with basic propositional logic and its laws, with truth tables, “star”, trees, andother methods. Work with modal, quantificational, and syllogistic logic.

5appointments at the beginning of each semester. Drop-in tutoring is also available. Tutors in theCenter consist of faculty participants, professional tutors, and student peer tutors. Studentsseeking help should come by the Center, North Hall 101 (opposite the bank), or call 718-6363459 to schedule an appointment.LMS: I expect you to frequently check the course website on LMS to download readings, checkguidelines for assignments, and check course announcements. *Important*: If you should haveany problems with the LMS, immediately contact the Help Desk in the basement of theEngineering Building (x3765 or helpdesk@pratt.edu). In order for me to verify claims of LMSoutages, I must hear from you when the LMS problem occurs, not hours or days later.Communication: I expected that you will frequently check your Pratt e-mail address for officialcourse communication. In turn, I will do the same. In most cases, I can respond to email withina few hours. You can also stay in touch via Twitter, Skype, and office hours.Calendar1.

2.2 Fuzzy Logic Fuzzy Logic is a form of multi-valued logic derived from fuzzy set theory to deal with reasoning that is approximate rather than precise. Fuzzy logic is not a vague logic system, but a system of logic for dealing with vague concepts. As in fuzzy set theory the set membership values can range (inclusively) between 0 and 1, in
