Semantic Diagrams: Why 'Symbolic Logic' Is an Unscientific Phrase

Symbols are not clearly defined. They lack the exactness of signs. A sign is made up of a signifier (word) and a signified (concept). Although signs can be learned, it requires experience to use them elegantly.

Ergo it is more scientific to refer to 'symbolic logic' as 'semantic logic'. Although one may argue that logical operations are not concrete, they have such exactitude. A reference to a logical operation signifies a specific relationship among concepts.

Thus we can refer to any significant verbal construction as a semantic diagram.
