b>"Logic is man’s method of reaching conclusions objectively by deriving them without contradiction from the facts of reality—ultimately, from the evidence provided by man’s senses. If men reject logic, then the tie between their mental processes and reality is severed; all cognitive standards are repudiated, and anything goes; any contradiction, on any subject, may be endorsed (and simultaneously rejected) by anyone, as and when he feels like it."
-Any Rand “Nazism and Subjectivism,” The Objectivist, Feb. 1971
Wes Bertrand joins me to discuss the foundational concepts in the science of logic. We use the work of Leonard Peikoff (Objectivism: The Philosphy of Ayn Rand and An Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology) as our guide.
Logic is about understanding reality in a non-contradictory way and how can we see things for what they are.
