critical thinking

posted by .

what is the meaning of validity, truth, and soundness as they relate to the area of logical syllogism?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syllogism

http://www.philosophyclass.com/logic.htm

These two sites will explain syllogisms very well.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "logical syllogism validity truth soundness" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
