What we know about the fallacy of nonsense? Of course, everyone deals with this who reads the novel of Lewis Carrol. Being famous for his tales for children, Lewis became so well-known for his unusual senses and topics which are included in his tales for children. In fact, this famous writer was the professor of logic. He wrote his famous and legendary works of fiction, treatises on the certain subjects of the logic and even a textbook which is called “Symbolic Logic”. He explains this element as the function of the logic with the help of which it is easy to formulate and classify the fallacious form of arguments as well as valid ones. So it is about the some of the functions from the Carroll’s tales. These tales are well-known not only for the children, but also for adults from all over the world. They are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Lewis Carroll presents different riddles, puzzles and something more that can play the role of nonsense which appears suddenly. In these two tales Lewis Carroll raises lots of questions about the logic and indirectly gives the answers to them. He challenges the ability of the readers to have a belief in what it presented in the tale. All the nonsensical puzzles represented in the both tales can either proved or disproved with the help of some forms of logic.
Let’s look at the example from the tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It is well-known that in this tale the pigeon says Alice to be a serpent, because all serpents eat eggs, and Alice will have the opportunity to eat eggs as well. By the way, such proposition has the symbolic meaning in the certain tale. So such offers would be then what is quantified as universal in the symbolic logic. And, of course, it is not the sudden fact that Lewis Carroll used the word “all” in this episode. He used the notations as AE for representing the proposition which means Alice eats eggs. The notation SE is used for representing the phrase “Serpents eat eggs” and it also concludes AS which means “Alice is serpent”. There are lots of other arguments which prove that both of Lewis Carroll’s tales are full of symbolic elements. The fallacy of nonsense is as interesting for children, as attractive for adults who are tired from the ordinary literature and want to deal with something unusual, but useful. Lewis Carroll also demonstrates lots of episodes which may seem to be strange, but every of them have logical explanations.
