Added Persia, to ancient civilizations studying logic.[edit]

I think Avicienna's Contribution to the study of logic, makes persia relevant. In fact, that makes all Muslim philosophers relevant. The main article unfairly makes no mention of any Muslim philosopher.

Readability[edit]

"According to the modern view, the fundamental form of a simple sentence is given by a recursive schema, involving logical connectives, such as a quantifier with its bound variable, which are joined by juxtaposition to other sentences, which in turn may have logical structure."

What does this mean? Peter Damian (talk) 17:46, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

(I think what it is getting at is that instead of a fixed two-term + copula structure, we now have a flexible structure where sentences can embed other sentences etc. The trick is to explain this to the average reader such as myself). Peter Damian (talk) 17:48, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

I think it may be better to reverse the order of the bullet points, starting with 'the modern view is more complex', then showing how the simple predicate analysis of the Aristotelian sentence can expand outwards indefinitely. Peter Damian (talk) 17:50, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

I've changed the order in which the concepts are introduced: hopefully the text is now easier to digest. — Charles Stewart (talk) 06:23, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Confucius[edit]

Please remove the photo of Confucius. He was NOT a logician. What is his contribution in logic study? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Logicmind7 (talkcontribs)

@Logicmind7: The photo of Confucius is not there because he is a logician. It's there because this article is part of the series of philosophy-related articles. That image was made to be placed in all articles of the series. Amccann421 (talk) 03:29, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for reply, the problems is that ..... He was NOT a logician, and he was NOT a great philosopher.
There were many greater logicians and philosophers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Logicmind7 (talkcontribs) 15:36, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Please sign all your talk page messages with four tildes (~~~~) and indent the messages as outlined in wp:THREAD and wp:INDENT. Thanks.
But greatness is not required to have your picture in Wikipedia. I think the best thing you can do, is leaving a message and hoping to get a discussion started at Template_talk:Philosophy_sidebar. Good luck! - DVdm (talk) 15:45, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Here is a philosophical question: What constitutes a great philosopher? Dhrm77 (talk) 16:56, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Erm... being there when there just happens to be lack of great scientists to really answer the questions at hand? - DVdm (talk) 17:14, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Personal logic[edit]

Usually the term "personal logic" means differentiation from the norm supposedly positive for the believer as he/she claims. Personal logic thinkers usually have very low iq test performance because they don't try to understand the cosmos, even if they claim so, simply to simplify the cosmos in order it fits inside their small brains. Physicists for example might have different opinions, but they don't try to create a personal logic, but to understand the actual world. Neuroscientists and psychologists study the aspects of personal logic, not to believe in it, but in order they understand the brain. Personal pseudo-logicians claim that their views are rare and unique, because there are infinite ways to be wrong than try to be reasonable. Personal logic isn't something rare or unique statistically though, even if the quasi-thinkers claim so. Everyone has partially an apparent "personal logic", but the term means shallow causal and biased thinking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:587:410D:7800:C87:6EB1:1B01:90D7 (talk) 22:10, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Couldn't find any sources on the term, can you provide any? Paradoctor (talk) 22:34, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
