Lost In Translation: Problems in Converting English Into Logic

A session at Skepticamp NYC 2010

  • Gregory Lopez

Saturday 4th December, 2010

10:10am to 10:30am (EST)

While many skeptics consider themselves as "logical" people, ACTUALLY being logical, in the strictest sense, is very difficult. The goals of this presentation are fourfold:
1) to demonstrate some elementary principles of how to translate English arguments into formal logic;
2) to explore some of the reasons why one would want to translate arguments into formal logic in the first place;
3) to examine some metalogical issues that arise in translation;
4) to provide some resources for further practicing this skill.
