Introduction to Logic
This course will cover the basic principles of Logic, based on Shaykh Akram Nadwi’s new book, Mabadi al-Mantiq. This book is part of a series of primers which introduce students to the Islamic Sciences. Logic is a preliminary discipline which concerns itself with establishing a framework for logical reasoning and argumentation through the development of sound definitions, reasoned statements and proofs. This discipline was advanced by Islamic philosophers, although much of its roots can be traced back to Greek thought. It is associated with the study of Arabic Rhetoric, Usul al-Fiqh and Theology.
Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Understand the origins and development of Logic, including the relationship between Greek and Islamic philosophers
- Be aware of key concepts in the discipline, including ideas, concepts, assents and indications
- Demonstrate how these concepts are used to form logical proofs
