24.241 Logic I (MIT)
This course provides an introduction to the aims and techniques of formal logic. Logic is the science of correct argument, and our study of logic will aim to understand what makes a correct argument good, that is, what is it about the structure of a correct argument that guarantees that, if the premises are all true, the conclusion will be true as well? Our subject (though, to be sure, we can only scratch the surface) will be truth and proof, and the connection between them.

Children of the New Democracy
The transition to democracy in South Africa brought real improvements in the opportunities open to many children and young people. Some constraints and pressures of the Apartheid Era have been mitigated or removed. In some respects, however, the lives of children and young people have not changed and, in some respects, they may have worsened.
