Logic and Emotions Logic and Emotions What is logic? According to Wikipedia, logic is most often said to be the study of criteria for the evaluation of arguments. Wikipedia also indicates that logic investigates and classifies the structure of statements and arguments. Logic can be broken down into many logic categories. Such categories are syllogistic logic, predicate logic, modal logic, deduction and reasoning, mathematical logic, philosophical logic, logic and computation, and argumentation theory. (Wikipedia, 2006). This logic list can be found on the Wikipedia website. On the website, it also explains what each logic means. That is one explanation of what logic is. Another explanation comes from The American Heritage Dictionary. The American Heritage Dictionary explains logic as the study of the principles of reasoning; a system of reasoning or valid reasoning. (The American Heritage Dictionary, 2000). As I had listed above, there are many ways to answer that question. However, no matter how it is answered, all answers should conclude one same meaning. And that is that logic means reasoning. Logic is something that I always try to use when making decisions. Sometimes, it is hard to use logic when emotions are involved. How are emotions defined? Emotions also can be explained in many ways. Emotions are how a person feels toward something or another person.
