1. What is logic? Informal: Informal logic is the study of natural language arguments . The study of fallacies is an especially important branch of informal logic. Formal: is the study of inference with purely formal content, where that content is made explicit. Symbolic logic: is the study of symbolic abstractions that capture the formal features of logical inference. The ambiguity is that "formal logic" is very often used with the alternate meaning of symbolic logic as we have defined it, with informal logic meaning any logical investigation that does not involve symbolic abstraction; it is this sense of 'formal' that is parallel to the received usages coming from " formal languages " or " formal theory ".
