Quote of the Week: Vern Poythress

Why should we bother to study logic? Spock exemplifies one part of its importance. On the one hand, Spock’s rational analysis gives the Star Trek crew valuable advice. On the other hand, we struggle with an apparent conflict between logic and emotion, or even between logic and humanness. We need a remedy.

– Vern Poythress, Logic: A God-Centered Approach to the Foundation of Western Thought (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2013), 27.
