The logic or dialectic stage is the next stage in the Trivium, a grouping of three levels of brain development that has been used as a model of education for millennia. At some point in late childhood or early adolescence, student’s brains begin to wrestle with the “why’s” and “how’s” of content. They begin to make connections, see correlations, and understand cause and effect.
In the School of Logic at MLCA, students are challenged to hone those new processing skills and build upon the foundation that has been laid in the grammar stage. Both formal logic (including the study of the syllogism) and informal logical fallacies are studied, as students begin to master the skill of reasoning and argumentation.
