Book cover
As García Cuadrado explains, "the goal of these pages is modest, but important: to help sharpen the critical sense both in one's own argumentation and in that of others. In this way, one will be in a position to contribute to the rigour of the discussion. In addition, this short text aims to establish the foundations for a student of Theology to be able to fruitfully cultivate the science of God".

He stresses that, according to a classic definition, man is a rational animal: "Rationality distinguishes us from other beings, by which we can know the truth and direct our freedom in accordance with it. But the exercise of reason has its rules: if they are followed correctly, they lead us to the truth; but if we misuse them, we will arrive at error or falsehood.

In this sense, he affirms that Logic, "without being the most important philosophical discipline , is an essential instrument for growing in the knowledge of truth". He also points out that the philosophy of language went hand in hand with logic for many centuries: "The laws of logic were discovered and analysed in a specific language , because thought is expressed through language. With language we communicate the truth, we grow in wisdom and we strengthen social bonds, because we share not only the truth of things, but also our ethical or religious values".
