Robert Hansen says: >If there was just an ounce of truth to your proposed relationship between language and logic then wouldn't logical people be the norm?
Quite the opposite. Cultural transmission (teaching and learnin) takes attention and work over a period of time. That means only some percentage will make it to the end point.
By your argument, there are people who walk around with fairly complete knowledge of propositional logic as a system, that just came to them naturally. And of all the other dozens of logics as well. Ha!
R Hansen says: Seriously? I came up with "implication" all on my own...
I see. One day you sat down and wrote up the truth table for p > q all by yourself. Then you added in a few more connectives, and set about proving soundness and completeness. Good job! We'll just clone your logic gene and achieve propagation that way.
