Isaac Watts on Logic

“Logic is the art of using Reason well in our inquiries after truth, and the communication of it to others. Reason is the glory of human nature, and one of the chief eminences whereby we are raised above our fellow creatures, the brutes, in this lower world. Reason, as to the power and principle of it, is the common gift of God to all men… The design of Logic is to teach us the right use of our reason, or intellectual powers”  –  Isaac Watts, from Logic: The Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry After Truth
