Theory

This lesson sets the stage for the rest of the course by defining terms and demonstrating why logic is an absolute. The respective contributions to logic of Aristotle and Ayn Rand are discussed, including the never-taught but transformative area of concepts. Two essential elements of the identity of consciousness are examined and their implications for logic explained.
