Discussion in Session 1 “Teaching Objectives”

  • R. I. Crane


Professor R. S. Silver referred to Dr. Himsworth’s remarks on the archaic mode of reasoning employed by Carnot; he considered that we had become used to taking short cuts in reasoning and did not recognise when we were being logical or, much worse, being illogical. With the advent of machine logic, he envisaged students in years to come not knowing the principles of logic at all, and believed it would be extremely serious if we were to lose logic from the subject. Dr. Himsworth agreed on the necessity of logic; he reiterated that people of Carnot’s time were familiar with that strict style of reasoning, the problem being that present-day students were not.
