Logic \Log"ic\, n. [OE. logike, F. logique, L. logica, logice, Gr. logikh` (sc. te`chnh), fr. logiko`s belonging to speaking or reason, fr. lo`gos speech, reason, le`gein to say, speak. See Legend.]
The science or art of exact reasoning, or of pure and formal thought, or of the laws according to which the processes of pure thinking should be conducted; the science of the formation and application of general notions; the science of generalization, judgment, classification, reasoning, and systematic arrangement; the science of correct reasoning.
Logic is the science of the laws of thought, as thought; that is, of the necessary conditions to which thought, considered in itself, is subject.
--Sir W. Hamilton.
Note: Logic is distinguished as pure and applied. ``Pure logic is a science of the form, or of the formal laws, of thinking, and not of the matter. Applied logic teaches the application of the forms of thinking to those objects about which men do think.''
A treatise on logic; as, Mill's Logic.
correct reasoning; as, I can't see any logic in his argument; also, sound judgment; as, the logic of surrender was uncontestable.
The path of reasoning used in any specific argument; as, his logic was irrefutable.
(Electronics, Computers) A function of an electrical circuit (called a gate) that mimics certain elementary binary logical operations on electrical signals, such as AND, OR, or NOT; as, a logic circuit; the arithmetic and logic unit.

mid-14c., "branch of philosophy that treats of forms of thinking," from Old French logique (13c.), from Latin (ars) logica, from Greek logike (techne) "reasoning (art)," from fem. of logikos "pertaining to speaking or reasoning," from logos "reason, idea, word" (see logos). Meaning "logical argumentation" is from c.1600.

Logic is the basis of many principles including the scientific method. 2 (context philosophy logic English) The study of the principles and criteria of valid inference and demonstration. 3 (context uncountable mathematics English) The mathematical study of relationships between rigorously defined concepts and of proof of statements. 4 (context countable mathematics English) A formal or informal language together with a deductive system or a model theory semantics. 5 (context uncountable English) Any system of thought, whether rigorous and productive or not, especially one associated with a particular person. 6 (context uncountable English) The part of a system (usually electronic) that performs the boolean logic operations, short for logic gates or logic circuit. v
1 (context intransitive pejorative English) To engage in excessive or inappropriate application of logi
2 (context transitive English) To apply logical reasoning to. 3 (context transitive English) To overcome by logical argument.

"Logic" is a song by Australian band Operator Please. It is the first single released from the band's second album, Gloves. The song's official release was on 16 February 2010.
Sir Robert Bryson Hall II (born January 22, 1990), known by his stage name Logic, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Logic expressed an interest in music as a teenager, and ventured into a musical career in early 2009, releasing a mixtape titled Young, Broke & Infamous, in 2010. He would then sign with Visionary Music Group, before releasing two more mixtapes over two years, which amassed Logic nationwide attention by 2012.
Logic went on to release his fourth mixtape Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever in 2013, to critical acclaim. Following the mixtape, it was announced that Logic secured a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings and his debut studio album Under Pressure was released in October 2014 to critical success. The record was preceded by the single "Under Pressure" and the album debuted at number four on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart; it was later confirmed to have sold more than 171,000 copies by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Logic's second studio album The Incredible True Story was released in November 2015 to critical and commercial success, with critics praising Logic's involvement in the production of the album, his introspective lyricism, and flexibility as a hip hop artist, calling it Logic's best album to date. It was later confirmed to have sold over 185,000 copies in the United States. Logic soon released Bobby Tarantino in 2016. It is his fifth mixtape and the first since Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever.
LOGIC is an electronic cigarette developed by Logic Technology Development. The electronic cigarette currently holds a 20% market share in U.S. convenience stores. The nicotine is delivered by polyethylene glycol or propolene glycol solution and other additives such as glycerine and flavorings. Propylene glycol is considered to be safe by the FDA for use in food, health and cosmetic products.
In April 2015, Japan Tobacco International agreed to acquire Logic Technology Development.
Logic (from the ) originally meaning the word, or what is spoken, (but coming to mean thought or reason) is generally held to consist of the systematic study of the form of arguments. A valid argument is one where there is a specific relation of logical support between the assumptions of the argument and its conclusion. (In ordinary discourse, the conclusion of such an argument may be signified by words like 'therefore', 'hence', 'ergo' and so on.)
There is no universal agreement as to the exact scope and subject matter of logic (see 'Rival conceptions of logic', below), but it has traditionally included the classification of arguments, the systematic exposition of the 'logical form' common to all valid arguments, and the study of fallacies and paradoxes. Historically, logic has been studied in philosophy (since ancient times) and mathematics (since the mid-1800s), and recently logic has been studied in computer science, linguistics, psychology, and other fields.
