"What are the ten ways something can be said to 'be'? What are the five ways something can be said of something else? What are the four questions you must answer in order to truly know something? What are the four rules for definition, and the four rules of classification? Ancient and medieval thinkers such as Aristotle to St. Thomas Aquinas knew the answers to these questions because they had a set of clearly defined and articulated rules for thinking. These rules, which make up a sort of lost wisdom of the ancients, are now available to modern students in an easy to use and accessible format in Memoria Press's Material Logic program."

Material Logic may be used as a follow-on course to Traditional Logic, or an introductory thinking skills course for high school. Designed to be either a one semester or one year course.
