Logic Corner: Generalization: Its Nature, Its Rules, Its Deep Importance
We will discuss a too-often ignored and misunderstood -- but important! -- aspect of logic: generalizing, our means of forming rules and finding patterns so we can get things done and get the values we need to survive and thrive.

In this class, we will learn what generalization/induction is, how it differs from deduction, why it is important, and learn a bit about how to do it well. Generalization is a critical skill in life and in science: we could not live well and we could not do science without it! It is something we all use in life -- we have to -- but something we do not always do right. And when we do it wrong, we get in trouble. In the study of logic, generalizations are universal or "for the most part"...
I have a degree in Philosophy, but have also studied logic and epistemology through the years, and have studied the history of science. Students have learned deep logic from me even when studying some other subject like math, SAT/ACT, physical fitness, or physics. What matters is not so much my credentials (which, yes!, I have, as you can see in my profile bio), but the success of my students. Those successes are my real credentials. Here are some: Dylan T, ex-high school student now in his 20s: "I really did learn more than geometry and math taking classes with you. I learned to reason and use logic to start solving things in everyday life. It’s pretty useful at work when I use reasoning to find root causes, and to find and fix problems. You teach people how to THINK!" Joe S, ex-high school student: "I tutored with Michael for physics and calculus at the end of my senior year of high school in order to prepare myself for my first semester of engineering at Texas A&M University. Not only was I prepared enough to feel comfortable and excel in the coursework my 1st semester but Michael introduced me to thinking about problems as a whole and inductively (a thought process which has helped in every form of learning). To this day, 7 years later, I still use this method to help me solve problems and learn, in work and in life, more effectively. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking to not only improve their grades but also to improve their ability to problem-solve and appreciate learning." Rajiv R, ex-junior high and high school student: "Michael sets the standard for excellence among tutoring services. I was a student of Michael Gold for around 7 years, and the education I received has had an immeasurably positive impact on my life. "I originally only sought out tutoring for Geometry & Algebra, during middle school, in order to place into higher level math classes. I found the tutoring to be so valuable that I continued my lessons even after placing into and acing my desired courses -- I received tutoring in math through high school and some of college (all the way up to 3D Calculus). Additionally, I received tutoring for English and Grammar, Physics, SAT prep and more. "Gold's tutoring helped me achieve A's in my classes and great scores on standardized tests, but this was just the 'tip of the iceberg.' With each lesson I also learned how to better think logically, carefully, and reasonably. These skills are essential to life and have helped me immensely - I still use the learning/study methods I developed through Gold's lessons to earn top scores in many college courses and to do well in my work and hobbies. "I will forever be grateful to Gold Academy, and highly recommend the service to any student who is looking to start learning, thinking and living."
