“What is logic and what is it good for?”: Reasons to Study Logic—Part 7

7. Wisdom. “Philosophy means “the love of wisdom.” Although logic alone cannot make you wise, it can help. For logic is one of philosophy’s main instruments. Logic is to philosophy what telescopes are to astronomy or microscopes are to biology or math to physics. You can’t be very good at physics if you’re very bad at math, and you can’t be very good at philosophy if you’re very bad at logic. [Adapted from Kreeft, Socratic Logic]
