Your Nibling Knows Logic: Introduction

Posted in counterfactuals, freedom, introductory, logic, math, philosophy, and reasons

I made this series (and this blog) with a set of goals.

– To give people the logical tools they need to deal with very common problems.

– To resist pessimism about people’s ability to deal with those problems.

– To generalize from what most of us already know to help deal with those common problems.

– To enter into the Summer of Math Exposition 1 (SoME1) competition.
