No mention of the term Symbolic Logic apparently giving way to Mathematical Logic I will add--Philogo 22:16, 2 February 2007 (UTC) Also added some common terms in Logic--82.3.76.253 00:45, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

I do not think these explanations are quite right: Symbolic logic, the area of mathematics which studies the purely formal properties of strings of symbols Mathematical logic, a branch of mathematics which grew out of symbolic logic --Philogo (talk) 13:36, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

What about logic in the more everyday use in speech? When someone, like a doctor, suggests you are not as logical as you think, what do they mean? What exactly? How can you challenge or assess that? I'm not sure the mere mention of cognitive psychology really covers it, not from a user-friendly way. I imagine people using this page to get ideas if the word 'logic' has come up as an accusation of lacking it. What about logic and logical structure in essay writing/general academic writing? (I was always getting comments 'could be more logically structured' through school up to degree, but never once did anyone describe 'logical'). It is in this case, logical structure is equating to outline structure - starting with a distilled strong central/over-arching idea and 'exploding' it into constituent parts in a step-by-step fashion. I want a link from this page to an appropriate page. I'd like it for both these instances of important areas of use that are not yet included. ...not sure I am brave enough to yet though (quite a new user I am). Ideas and help? Comments?
