Logic is the branch of philosophy dealing with arguments.
Branches of LogicEdit
Logic is divided into two main branches: inductive and deductive logic.
- Axiomatic System- a deductive system of reasoning that starts with a relatively small number of basic principles (axioms).
- Predicate Logic- the branch of symbolic logic that takes predicates as the fundamental units of analysis.
- Sentential Logic- the branch of symbolic logic that takes sentences as the fundamental units of analysis.
- Truth Preservation- the inability of a method or pattern of reasoning to take one from truths to falsehood.
