An Invitation to Formal Reasoning

This paintings introduces the topic of formal good judgment when it comes to a approach that's "like syllogistic logic". Its process, like out of date, conventional syllogistic, is a "term logic". The authors' model of good judgment ("term-function logic", TFL) stocks with Aristotle's syllogistic the perception that the logical types of statements which are all in favour of inferences as premises or conclusions might be construed because the results of connecting pairs of phrases through a logical copula (functor).

262; the bar of course does not mean a second negation, but only serves Leibniz as a bracket. 10 Compare M. 198; also cf. 484, where Leibniz is blamed for the following: •... having analyzed 'some A's are B's' as 'AB exists' [hel does not go on to interpret this as 'AB contains existence' which would be symbolized as 'AB '" AB (Existence)'. 489 ff) do not refute the system of Leibnitian logic but only the miscarried reconstruction of it by Castaneda. That 'Ens' should not be viewed as a conceptual-constant has first been noticed by L.

I. Lewis in this century for a second time. If Lewis had viewed the Leibnitian logic with somewhat less scepticism, then perhaps he would have noticed that the question he left open: which calculus of strict implication corresponds to the Boolean Algebra? - has been answered by Leibniz in an interesting and rather obvious way. 20 Cf. lV, §3; also Kauppi, "Zur Analyse der hypothetischen Aussage bei Leibniz·, in A.

In this notation the meaning of an expression depends on the context in which it occurs.
