>I would say the "laws of proof" rather than the "laws of thought".
I'll defer to any recognized attempt at definition, but I think "proof" is too narrow, if my glib statement was too broad.
Anyway, in context, I simply meant to point out that logic claims to apply to much subject matter that is not mathematical in content. So the notion that "all logic is mathematics" is not generally held to be defensible, though if it has adherents, I'm sure we'll find them here.
