Outreach: Logic Made Accessible

I am excited to mentor Columbia College student Jonathan Tanaka and his team. They are in the process of designing and writing Logic Made Accessible, an enjoyable logic curriculum that is easily accessible for free to individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. It is now taught in more than 30 countries.

Logic Made Accessible starts from the assumption that Aristotelian logic is helpful for all fields of learning. Aristotelian or ancient logic in the relevant sense is concerned with tools and skills that can help one articulate one’s ideas, assess arguments, and formulate one’s own arguments. The curriculum includes lesson sheets on questions like these: What makes a sequence of sentences an argument? What are typical flaws of arguments?
