"Logic used to be a key component in liberal education: it was part of the classic “trivium.” ... The School of Salamanca used scholastic logic to give birth to economic theory. ... The Austrian School used logic to rigorize and advance economic science. However, the rise of positivism rang the death knell for the widespread study of logic. It is time to reinstate logic as a tool." ~Mises Academy. You can still download the text for free without enrolling in the online course.
This course presents the essentials of logic—the science of correct reasoning. Deductive reasoning transmits truth from premises to conclusion. If one starts with true premises, and reasons correctly, the conclusion will be true also. Common fallacies are identified and examples from discussions in politics and economics are given.

Whatever your career path or field of study, you will find the use of logic to be invaluable. ~ Mises Academy.
