i had to take critical reasoning, which coverd fallacies and argument papers but not a course called logic. this is for a biology degree in the UC system. i'm sure if you're getting a philosophy degree it will be different.
if state farm has perfected teleportation technology why do they still sell car insurance?

Um, I don't think you can teach logic. Logic is genetic as far as I am concerned. Only an academic would think they wrote the book on logic.

I took logic circuits, does that count?
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

You're thinking of "reason" or perhaps "logos."

Logic is about principles governing inference and deduction.

Examples: First Order Logic, Booelan Logic, syllogistic logic, etc.
