THUNK – 72. Logic (Critical Thinking, Pt. 1)

“Logic” isn’t just being reasonable; it’s a formal system of finding truth, like math. Why did nobody tell me?!

(Quick note: the Law of the Excluded Middle is omitted in this video, both for time & because I think it’s a little finicky to define in a way that won’t be misunderstood colloquially.)
