Lecture Summary

A well-structured argument proceeds from clearly stated assumptions, using carefully chosen reasoning steps, in orderly fashion to a conclusion. Circular reasoning, or begging the question, is a logical fallacy. This lecture will show that, nevertheless, circular reasoning can be perfectly valid. Moreover, a deep connection of this logical phenomenon with computational processes will be revealed.
