Logic and Philosophy
Premise 1: I take Philosophy
Premise 2: I feel confused during class
Conclusion: Therefore, Philosophy is confusing
Looking at my premises, it depends on each person individually wether the premises may be true or not. In my case, both premises are true, which allows my conclusion to be valid. But for someone else if they fully understood Philosophy and then read my second premise, then my conclusion would not be valid to them.
A definition of logic is: reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity. After reading this definition we are able to see how when we look for validity in premises, we are using logic to guide us.
