Portal:Logic From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia As a formal science, logic investigates and classifies the structure of statements and arguments, both through the study of formal systems of inference and through the study of arguments in natural language. The field of logic ranges from core topics such as the study of fallacies and paradoxes, to specialized analysis of reasoning using probability and to arguments involving causality. Logic is also commonly used today in argumentation theory. [1] The history of logic is the study of the development of the science of valid inference (logic). Logic was known as 'dialectic' or 'analytic' in Ancient Greece. A prolific writer, he was also a populariser of philosophy and a commentator on a large variety of topics, ranging from very serious issues to those much less so. Jump up ^ J. Purge server cache

Library Keystone XL: Down the Line A Journey Along the Controversial Pipeline and Into America’s Energy FrontierBy Steven Mufson The proposed 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline has enflamed the bitter fight over America's energy future. Opponents say the pipeline—which is designed to bring oil extracted from Canadian tar sands down through the U.S. to ports in Texas—would further bind future generations of Americans to our outdated and dead-end oil-based energy policy. Supporters claim that it represents a step towards America’s energy independence. But Steve Mufson, author of Keystone XL: Down the Line and a reporter at The Washington Post, suggests that the real story of the pipeline is one about American frontiers and just how far we are willing to go to feed our addiction to oil. Recounting his journey along the length of the proposed pipeline, Mufson asks readers to consider what this policy debate looks like beyond the issues of climate change, tar sands and U.S. energy trade policy.
