Learning Logical-Thinking

We have both facts and factors[*],
statements and non-statements.[*]

In logical-thinking we focus on
determining
the truth
versus
the falsehood of
“statements”

and thereafter upon the validity and/or strength of
formal-argumentation
and of
moral-reasoning –
that need to be thoroughly tested for truth and for fallaciousnesss.
on the one-hand “Deductively”
and on the other “Inductively”.

{‘Factors’ being ‘mixed’ pieces of verbal-communication
therefore need to be ‘sorted’
since logical-thinking can only ‘work’ for “statements”.
============

Further “come-acrossables” will include
such paired terms as
“necessary-cause” and “sufficient-cause”-

a “necessary-part” of a seagull’s ‘diet’ is
fish;
but a “sufficient-part” is dog-biscuits.

[*] “Shut the door please”
is not a workably ‘logical’ statement.

Neither would any daily-essentials
‘Cockney-Code’ sayings such as
“How’re yer plates of meat ?”
be inclusible as ‘statements’

NB Most of us need to refer to a Formal Logic textbook for a complete list and differentiation of verbal-terms and ‘verfbalisations [**]

[**] “verbalisation” has conflictual content, too –
e.g. Police-Speak including
deliberately ‘victimisingly’
“spin-doctoring” questions and statements-
made to a “suspect-perp”
