Question and answer
imagine someone asks you what you have learned in your logic class and what you found to be the most useful information you learned there. is it important for people to study logic? what kinds of
mistakes might they make without having been exposed to a careful study of reasoning provided by logic?
Perhaps the most important thing to give your child to prepare him to confront this world is a firm grasp of logical thinking skills. [ [ Without this refined skill ? the ability to reason correctly ? his thinking is not firmly anchored, but is "tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine." Children who can logically understand what they believe will hold fast to the truth
and will be able to defend it throughout their lives. The study of formal logic should be considered foundational to every educational curriculum. In the past it was. The roots of logic stretch into every other subject. The construction and programming of computers, for example, is based entirely upon the application of the laws of logic. The proofs of algebra and geometry rely upon the laws of logic. The laws of logic, in one way or another, are fundamental to every academic discipline. Unfortunately, the study of logic is dispensed with in the modern curriculum. Social skills are considered more important than thinking skills. Children do not learn to think for themselves. The study of formal logic will give your child life-long skill in proper reasoning. The study of logic should be considered indispensable to every Classical Education. ] ]
