Hot damn. Thank God I'll be dead soon enough!!!!!!!!!!!!


That class doesn't represent what logic is, though. Logic focuses on the use of symbolic language and it's argumental (and almost mathematical) properties.

Don't let one messed up class distort your idea of what logic is. In a real logic class, you learn truth tables, fallacies, symbolic notation, sybolic language, etc.

These are all things that stem from Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, Moore, and the analytical philosophers of the early 20th century.
