World Logic Day 14th January : About, Details, History, Significant, Background

World logic Day is celebrated on 14th January every year.On this day UN point out the ability of thinking.

One of the most distinguishing characteristics of humanity is the ability to think. The concept of humanity is related with concepts such as consciousness, knowledge, and reason in various civilizations. Human beings are defined as "rational" or "logical animals" in the classic western paradigm. Many cultures have studied logic as an examination into the foundations of thinking throughout history, and logic has played an important part in the development of philosophy and science since its earliest formulations.

Despite its indisputable importance in the advancement of information, sciences, and technology, logic is underappreciated by the general people. The International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences (CIPSH) and UNESCO have declared World Logic Day to bring the intellectual history, conceptual significance, and practical consequences of logic to the attention of interdisciplinary science groups and the general public.

A dynamic and global annual celebration of World Logic Day aims at fostering international cooperation, promoting the development of logic, in both research and teaching, supporting the activities of associations, universities and other institutions involved with logic, and enhancing public understanding of logic and its implications for science, technology and innovation. Furthermore, the celebration of World Logic Day can also contribute to the promotion of a culture of peace, dialogue and mutual understanding, based on the advancement of education and science.
