A good practical basic outline and guide to propositional logic for those taking this philosophy course.
on November 12, 2016
First off, this four page laminated outline (Logic: The basic principles of propositional & syllogistic logic-plus quantification theory published by Quick Study Academic) is not a substitute for reading specialized books on this topic. This is an advanced college level outline for those studying philosophy and in particular the basic and advanced principles of logic. In fact, if you have not already taken a basic course in logic this outline may have material you may not understand.
Fortunately, I was familiar with some of the material (syllogistic logic) and found this outline very informative.
This outline covers the following areas: Basic elements, truth-table method, inference: premises and conclusion, shorter truth-table method, truth-tree method, proofs by natural deduction, symbol notation, truth-tree method for quantification theory, forms of statements, syllogistic reasoning, immediate inferences based on classical square of opposition, and enthymemes.
The numerous symbols, definitions and examples will provide students with a good basic understanding of propositional logic; however, nothing can replace a philosophy professor who can explain the finer details of this subject.
