Logic is about understanding reality in a non-contradictory way and how can we see things for what they are. It's been over a year since the last installment of Logic Saves Lives, but we are now rebooting the series for the purposes of review and expansion. Tony Myers will be the permanent co-host for these episodes. See Tony's past School Sucks contributions here, and please have a look at Tony's comprehensive notes on the science of logic here.
