logic is the way of reasoning not the ability to use reason to perform an action(necessarily)
Logic is what you say it is, but also more, logic does not have to always do with performing an action, as you described. True you use logic when performing an action, but its also something more. K bear with me since ima copy some stuff.
"Logic tells us how we ought to reason if we want to reason correctly. Whether people actually follow these rules of correct reasoning is an empirical matter, something that is not the concern of logic."
In other words, what your talking about is the psychology of reasoning. Logic cannot be bought with money simply by hiring a teacher. Logic is only something you can get on your own. There are people who have no money at all but still make logical descisions such as the ones you make.
Therefore when you talk about mathematical "logic" you are also talking about mathmatical "reasoning".(same with science)
Logic is something no money can buy, you can buy things that influence your logic. But you cannot buy logic itself.
Your "in other words" is wrong. I'm not stating the psychology behind logic, I'm pointing out what logic is, if it was psychological, I'd tell why people do it. Also I don't agree with what you copy and pasted, Logic follows the rules of "empirical matter" because to reason without Science or Math is not logic. It's not logical, there is no hard evidence. Well, I guess everyone has their own definition of logic.
Well, since you want to play hard ball, I will give another method.
Hire a bunch of neurosurgeons and either alter my brain in a method that makes me a more logical thinker (damage the right side of the brain (the creative side), or simply hire people who specialize in brain washing, or spend trillions on making a machine that can manipulate the brain through surgery or any other alternate method.
What i meant in my "in other words" was that you were talking about the reasoning of actions not of logic.
-.- look, logic just isn't something you can buy. By altering your brain you may(somehow) grow smarter through whatever imaginary process, but that wont "give" you logic. Think of it this way, you somehow have the matrix jack into your head and you know all the math and science up to date(or the future, w/e) Now BASED of off that your logic is changed, but thats about it. You didn't gain* logic you merely changed yours.
Logic is not something that can be perfected. Logic is not something of quantity.
You can't purchase such things because its not opinionated. No one person's logic is better than the other without opinion.
