Logic Camp 2019 at Stanford for High School students
For high school students only and offered as a Stanford summer camp, Logic Is Fundamental is where you will master a life skill you need to succeed. WHY LOGIC? Logic - being able to reason clearly - is fundamental to almost everything you do: The subjects you study; the professions you pursue. Computer programming, mathematics, the sciences, social sciences, the humanities, the arts, medicine, law all require you to read, write, and think critically. What you decide. Advertisers, politicians, companies, and organizations, your friends, family, and experts in a field - all at some time want you to buy their products, vote for them, or support what they believe and want to do. Logic helps you spot the hype, the nonsense, who is wrong and right. How you think and formulate your own opinions and views. You use the language of logic to state observations, define concepts, and form theories. You use reason to reach conclusions and solve problems all the time.
