Deductive reasoning

Publications that examine deductive reasoning with propositional connectives, such as ‘or’ and ‘and’, syllogistic inferences based on quantifiers such as ‘all’ or ‘only’, relational inferences such as ‘to the right of’, and meta-deductions including inferences about other people’s assertions.
