Single Idea 14187

[catalogued under 5. Theory of Logic / A. Overview of Logic / 4. Pure Logic]

Full Idea

The topic-neutrality of logic need not mean there is a pure subject matter for logic; rather, that the logician may need to go everywhere, into mathematics and even into metaphysics.

Gist of Idea

If logic is topic-neutral that means it delves into all subjects, rather than having a pure subject matter
