Logic & Arguments - premises & conclusions, truth, deduction vs. induction

Learn how to use logic to examine arguments. This lesson introduces premises & conclusions, distinguishes the form of an argument from its content, conceptualizes truth & validity, and contrasts deductive & inductive reasoning. The video concludes with a brief overview of theories of truth (coherence, correspondence, foundationalism, etc.). This video is part of a course on the logic of arguments: http://www.nativlang.com/linguistics/logic-argument.php These lessons build on the introduction to logic, which presents logic as a language and a way to understand and analyze individual sentences: http://www.nativlang.com/linguistics/logic.php I kept the section on truth short & superficial. If it's depth you crave, start with Stanford's articles on truth in logic: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/truth/ Music: Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
