Upcoming Book by Summer Instructor Randall Geller

Still looking for a course to take this summer?

Randall Geller will be teaching two courses with us this summer – The Making of the Modern Middle East in Summer Session I and Arab-Israeli Conflict in Summer Session II

Taking a course with Randall Geller this summer will be particularly exciting – he has just signed a contract to publish his first book, Non-Jews in the Israeli Army, 1948-1958, with Rowman and Littlefield Press.

He also recently had an article, “The Status of the Armenian Christians in Post-Independence Israel: the First Decade,” accepted for publication in the journal Middle Eastern Studies.  This will be his 4th article and he will be actively working on others throughout the summer.

Summer Session I registration closes on Friday, May 27 – just a few days away! There’s still space in NEJS 185B The Making of the Modern Middle East, but time is running out! Register today!

Introduction to Symbolic Logic

PHIL 6A: Introduction to Symbolic Logic. Listed for Summer Session II Nelson Hosley.

Hosley Alice in Wonderland

A bit about Nelson:

I’ve worked on formal models of rationality and scientific method beginning at the London School of Economics and continuing at Brandeis.

I am new to the Brandeis Summer School and am excited to be part of it!

Nelson Hosley

What makes your course unique?

Unlike other courses, logic virtually has universal application. Its general relevance for all kinds of questioning and answering across cultural or disciplinary boundaries is also what makes logic philosophical.

What draws you to this subject area?

Symbolic logic drastically enhances my ability to think lucidly and critically. These general benefits are what draw me always back to the subject.

What do you hope students will learn from your course?

Logic opens up an entire dimension of thought attending to the form rather than the content of statements. Symbolic logic maps out this dimension. Students will learn to use this formal mode of thinking to analyze arguments as is done in philosophy; yet, they will also develop a foundation for using logic within their own fields such as computer science, linguistics, mathematics, or law.
