Study of correct reasoning or good arguments.

Extended logics accept the basic intuitions behind classical logic and extend it to other fields, such as metaphysics, ethics, and epistemology.

Logic is studied in and applied to various fields, such as philosophy, mathematics, computer science, and linguistics.
