This course is a continuation and development of Logic I. We will reflect on the theory of supposition, compound propositions and different kinds of non-categorical syllogisms as modal, incomplete, compound and rhetoric. In the second half of the semester, we will examine and logical fallacies. The course will conclude with an introduction to symbolic language and different method of scientific demonstration and argumentation as deduction and induction.
