Psychology and Logic
I have already talked a little about deduction and its role in the mind. In this chapter, however, I will develop this theme much more fully. The relation between psychology and logic is important, not only because of the central role of deductive logic in human thought, but also because it is a microcosm of the relation between language and thought in general. Logic is an example of a linguistic system, and it reveals certain phenomena that are obscured by the sheer complexity of other linguistic systems.
