Visualizing Concepts and Propositions

Lecture no. 4 from the course: The Philosopher's Toolkit: How to Be the Most Rational Person in Any Room

Visualizing Concepts and Propositions

Taught by Professor Patrick Grim | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Explore the most basic elements of thought to prepare for the coming lectures. Concepts are the atoms of thought, expressed by words and illustrated by Venn diagrams and concept trees. Words form sentences—or propositions—which are the molecules of thought. Together, concepts and propositions provide a structural framework to express thought and convey information.
