39050-39065 • Spring 2003
Meets MW 11:00AM-12:00PM WAG 302

This is a course in the basic principles of logic. The student will come out of this course with an understanding of deductive inference and of argument generally, as wells as the notions of logical consequence, validity, soundness, and logical truth. Specifically, we will be looking at sentential logic (which treats the inferential relations among simple sentences) and predicate logic. Predicate logic is distinguished from sentential logic by its use of quantifiers.

39050 • Spring 2001
Meets MWF 11:00AM-12:00PM PAR 308

We will examine recent work in philosophy that is written from a Christian point of view or that examines philosophical questions that arise within the framework of the Christian faith. The issues to be covered include the relationship between faith and reason, the possibility of demonstrating the existence of God, the problem of evil, the problem of reconciling divine foreknowledge and sovereignty with human responsibility, and the relation of God to time.  Special emphasis will be placed on the relevance of Christian philosophy to foundational questions concerning reality, knowledge and ethics. 

Prerequisites: no prior work in philosophy is expected.  Non-majors are encouraged.

Texts:

G. K. Chesterton, St. Thomas Aquinas

C. S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

Josef Pieper, Leisure: The Basis of Culture

Francis A. Schaeffer, He is There and He is not Silent

Kelly J. Clark, Return to Reason

Phl 327 Supplemental Readings, available at UT Library electronic reserves. 

Evaluation:

• Three in-class exams (combination of essay and multiple choice): 25% each (including an in-class test on Dec. 7).  There will be an optional, comprehensive final that can be counted for 25% of the course grade, permitting a student to drop the lowest in-class test grade.

• Short papers (eight 2-page responses to the readings): 10%. Short papers are to be turned in at the beginning of class on Monday, responding to the coming week's reading.

• Class and section participation: 15%

• Optional term paper: due the last day of class.  2500-3000 words on a topic pre-approved by the instructor.  The term paper may be used to drop a low midterm grade, or in place of the third in-class exam, at the student's discretion.

history of logic sources


 

LOGIC BIBLIOGRAPHIES 

Rabus: Logische Literatur.pdf  This is an impressive bibliography from the 1860s, neglected for ca. a century (cf.my 1967 downloadable note in Publications). A reprint, annotated by me,  was scheduled by the publisher G. Olms (Germany), in the early 1960s. However, the project was withdrawn, quite justifiably, when Wilhelm Risse submitted (to the same publisher)  his great Bibliographia Logica (letter from Georg Olms, Sept 25, 1963).

Classes in the history of logic

Foreknowledge, bivalence, freedom

Locke's universal triangle: its undeserved fame

The meanings of "is" ( "the logic of being")

In the earlier period of modern logic it was emphasized that the so-called copula "is" boasts a variety of meanings (identity, predication, etc.). Frege's  idea was that ordinary language could and should be corrected (since it is not "natural" but "cultural", like a hammer). in the second half of the 20th c. the opposite view developed. A forceful supporter of this opposite view has been J.Hintikka. 

PROJECTS


 

MONLORIUS: PREPARATION OF A NEW EDITION OF THIS IMPRESSIVE 16TH C. COMMENTARY ON ARISTOTLE'S LOGIC. 

Johannis  Baptistae Monlorii Valentini ...

Paraphrasis, et  scholia in duos libros Priorum Analyticorum Aristotelis, vel de Ratiocinatione,

Graeco sermone in Latinum ab eo nunc denuo conversos

Accesserunt duo libelli eiusdem auctoris, unus de nomine Entelechia;

alter de Universis, quod in rebus constent sine mentis opera

VALENTIAE, 1569

Keckermann, a 1500s contemporary of Monlorius,  said that trying to write on Aristotelian logic after 1569, when Monlorius´ commentary on the Prior Analytics was published, was like attempting to write the Iliad after Homer...  Quo opere omnes veterum et recentium operas in illos Aristotelis ita superavit, ut qui iam post Monlorium in hac parte aliquid aggrediuntur, post Homerum Iliada scribere videantur, quoted by Risse,  Geschichte, p. 326. Nevertheless, Monlorius, like many others from his century (Keckermann included), have been victims of the poor philosophical historiography prevailing until not long ago: they are not exactly medieval, nor are they part of "modern philosophy" (Descartes-Locke-Kant). Thus, they have been largely ignored.
