Proverbs 1:3, 5

**Laws of Logic**

**Strong's Concordance**

**Webster Definition**

traditionally, the three fundamental laws of logic:

(1) the law of contradiction,

(2) the law of excluded middle (or third), and

(3) the principle of identity.

Or

One of the primary principles of logic is the law of (non-) contradiction. Basically it states that no statement (proposition, assertion, etc.) can be both true and not true--false-

The second primary law of logic is the principle of excluded middle. The law of (non-)contradiction simply states that A cannot equal or be non-A

The third primary law of logic is called the law of identity. It states that A=A or that "if any statement is true, then it is true

The fourth primary law of logic is the law of logical or rational inference

These four primary laws of logic are vital--essential--to all coherent or intelligible discussions or arguments. As I hope is evident, one cannot--in any intelligent sense--not use them
