InterestsThe basic laws of formal logic are purely relational principals
which are considered to inhere within all experience. There are,
in essence, three basic laws, two deductive-the laws of identity
and contradiction-and one inductive-the law of cause and effect.
The deductive principal of identity states that any given idea is,
for rational purposes, only that idea and not something else. In
purely logical terms it may be stated that in the
form "A is A" In order to be "thought about" a thing can represent
neither totality (which is indefinable) nor a state of indefinite
flux (which is also indefinable).
