The MS Weapon thread has raised some important questions around the
role of logic. Is it "just" a tool? What is its scope and limits?
Do we need means outside of logic to determine when it is appropriate
to use it? Can a logical argument say anything about reality, or is
it (as one contributor put it recently) just "smoke and mirrors"?
I have a few ideas, but I'd like to hear from others first.
