# Peikoff Logic Project Summary and Flashcards

Closing Thoughts & Flashcards for Peikoff Logic Course

I'm essentially done with my Peikoff logic course project. I wanted to write some retrospective comments.

I think I learned some useful material about logic. In particular, I have a stronger understanding of syllogisms than I used to. One particular idea I have a stronger understanding of is the idea of distribution. I also greatly improved my understanding of and ability to consistently apply the operations of conversion, obversion, and contraposition to statements. I also thought the material regarding formation of proper definitions was helpful.

There was some material I found less helpful. I didn't think the material on induction was great. The material on informal fallacies was okay but I already knew a fair amount of it.

Overall I think the course was decent. It could have benefitted from more details/diagrams/examples in some spots, and I had to look up a few points (particularly regarding conversion/obversion/contraposition) and reference outside materials to really understand what was going on. So I think it's less thorough/comprehensive than is ideal if you want a more self-contained course, but if you're willing to take some initiative then it's fine.

I'm sharing the flashcards I made for myself in case other people find them useful.
