Logic Goats

Came across these logic goats at Boing Boing.

In the philosophy of mind we emphasize how computations can be multiply realized in different hardware. These are fun paper-made logic gates. The and-goat nods its head when the right button AND the left button are pressed. The or-goat nods its head if at least one button is pressed. Someone should build a general purpose computer out of these goats!

  1. I can’t think of anything in English on fallacies which is really fun. Try this web site http://www.fallacyfiles.org/, which has a lot of examples of fallacies.

    On the other hand, if you want to read some fun books on logic puzzles, you can try Raymond Smullyan’s books, e.g. What is the name of this book? (That’s really the name of the book!)

    More more general readings on critical thinking, I have a list here: http://philosophy.hku.hk/think/critical/resources.php
