PHIL 6A: Introduction to Symbolic Logic. Listed for Summer Session II Nelson Hosley.
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!
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.
As you submit your last papers and wrap up studying for final exams, don’t forget to plan for your summer!
Registration for Brandeis Summer School is still open, and seats in courses that can help you get ahead in degree requirements are still available!
The registration deadline for Summer Session I, June 6-July 8, 2016 and Extended Session, June 6- August 12, 2016, fast approaching – May 27! If you’re hoping for some downtime between finals and starting up studying again, maybe Session II will work better for your schedule. For Summer Session II, July 11-August 12, 2016, the deadline is July 1!

Are you thinking about continuing on in a medical field after graduation?
Many Brandeis students are similarly planning for applications to medical schools. Each year, a large portion of these students decide to focus on their premedical sciences courses during the summer so they can mitigate the distraction of school year course loads and activities.
While the premedical sciences sequence in the Summer School has a high price-tag than some of the other areas schools, it’s for good reason. The medical school acceptance rate of Brandeis students and alums is cited at over 20% higher than the national average annually. This summer sequence is intensive, but Summer School instructors are dedicated to student learning.
