The contemporary, classical education movement in the United States has taken a keen interest in the trivium of grammar, logic, and rhetoric–the three liberal arts of language that have the potential to clarify our thoughts and refine our ability to express such thoughts in correct, clear, and persuasive words. Among these three arts, logic is perhaps the least examined and understood. In an effort to improve participants’ understanding of logic, the course will study brief selections from Aristotle’s treatises on logic (that are collectively referred to as his Organon) in combination with secondary treatments that provide a synthesis of Aristotelian logic. Moreover, logic is an art (ordered toward making arguments and like), and so we cannot be content merely to know about logic. The course, therefore, also will attend to how to make sound arguments and evaluate others’ argumentation through the completion and discussion of logic exercises. In sum, participants who complete this course will deepen their understanding of Aristotle’s view of logic and improve their ability to fashion definitions, divisions, statements, and arguments and to judge the quality of other’s definitions, arguments, and so forth.
