Subject: Internet Discussion List for Logic Teachers

Announcing a list based forum:

LOGIC-L

For the discussion of topics related to the _teaching_ and study of

*****************
ELEMENTARY LOGIC
*****************

"Logic is an old subject, and since 1879 it has been a great one."
 --Willard Van Orman Quine

"Logic is an old subject, and since the 4th Century B.C. it has been a
great one." Jonathan Lear, _Aristotle and Logical Theory_
___________________________________________________________

 The primary purpose of this List is to provide a forum for the
exchange of views, experiences, techniques, and professional information
pertaining to the _teaching_ and _study_ of elementary logic.

 By 'elementary logic' we mean the areas of logic customarily
taught up through the undergraduate level, and including the concerns
of both deductive and inductive logic, with special emphasis upon the
apparatus of first-order predicate calculus.

 The intent of the List is to have a strong pedagogical emphasis,
though this is not to be regarded as exclusive of discussions of a
theoretical character.

 We anticipate and encourage discussion on this List of such
topics as:
 --Developing trends in the teaching of logic
 --Comparison of the levels at which elementary logic is taught
 symbolic logic, metatheory, etc.)
 --New developments in the teaching of elementary logic (e.g.,
 modallogic, relevance logic, speech act theory, etc.)
 --Issues in the philosophy of logic, epistemology, cognitive
 science,linguistics, computer science, psychology etc. as they
 bear upon the teaching of logic
 --Logic software available as teaching and learning aids
 --Consideration of new (and old) textbooks and their merits
 --Successful (and unsuccessful) practices in the teaching of logic
 (e.g., the use of puzzles, humor, paradoxes,), differing testing
 methods, etc.
 --The relations of logic to ordinary language, and the strengths
 and limitations of formalization
 --The interrelations between logical and rhetorical modes of
 communication
 --The _history_ of the teaching of logic, and where it seems to
 be going as we move into the 21st Century

This list is thus primarily intended to be a forum

 (i) for pedagogical and theoretical discussions of materials
relating to the _teaching_ and _study_ of elementary logic

 (ii) for sharing information regarding conferences, lectures, recent
publications, bibliographies, teaching methods, and other material of
potential interest to those engaged in teaching elementary logic.

The list is unmoderated and open to anyone, from any discipline, with
a serious academic interest in this area of study. Questions, shared
research and insight, relevant conference announcements/calls for
papers, etc. are welcome and encouraged.
