Traditional Logic II covers the figures of the traditional syllogism, forms of rhetorical arguments, kinds of hypothetical syllogisms, as well as relational arguments. The book also includes a wealth of famous arguments throughout history. Some examples include:

  • Rene Descartes’ famous enthymeme (“I think, therefore, I am”)
  • C. S. Lewis’ disjunctive syllogism proving the deity of Christ
  • Christ’s injunction (“You cannot serve both God and mammon”)
  • David Hume’s famous dilemma stating the problem of evil
  • St. Thomas Aquinas’ cosmological argument for the existence of God

By the end of Traditional Logic II, the student will be able to analyze a variety of argument forms, including enthymemes, sorites, and epicheirema, as well as recognize and respond to dilemmas.

The level of understanding attained in this course would be more than that typically attained in a college course.
