Finally, I would put in a plea for a course in logic in every junior school. Not, I hasten to add, anything approaching a course in Aristotelian logic; but a course in the rudiments of logical thinking. Much can be done through the classroom discussions and debates which juniors delight in; but not everything. There come moments at which every such debate has to be held up, so fantastically illogical and irrelevant have the "arguments" become. The teacher's intervention at such times is rarely successful ; he merely stops the fun in order to talk over the heads of his pupils. Systematic preparation for debate, comparable with the systematic preparation given before hearing a broadcast or seeing a film, would have a better and should have a lasting effect.
