How, What, When and Why do you think?
4 Laws of Reasonable Thought
1. Principle of Non-Contradiction. A statement and its negation cannot both be true.
Example a: It is raining—It is not raining. With no
further qualification, only ONE of these statements can be true.
2. Principle of Identity. A statement's contention asserts fully and only that contention.
Example a: It is raining. This means and ONLY means that it is raining.
3. Principle of Excluded Middle. The statement or its negation must be true.
Example a: It is raining—It is not raining. With no further qualification, one of them MUST be true.
4. Principle of Sufficient Reason. Whether a statement, information, or a course of thinking is valid depends upon whether it is more reasonable to accept than not to accept.
