Logica, retorica e linguistica = Logic, Rhetoric and Grammar


Logic, Rhetoric and Grammar. The connection between Logic, Rhetoric, and Grammar, a connection well-known to the ancients, is also prominent in the modern theory of argumentation, in which the field of Logic – in the nineteenth century restricted to mathematical studies – is in fact extended. Logic and Linguistics have in common the study of languages, and the principles of Logic also show their validity in the semantics of natural languages. The problems of meaning in natural languages which appear difficult to analyze within a logical-semantic approach can be adequately dealt with in Pragmatics. While Logic proceeds through demonstrations and Rhetoric is the art of persuasion, argumentation employs both the deductive methods of formal logic and the alternative inferencing methods of pragmatics
