Book two of *Fantasy and Science Fiction* was the pair of Alice novels: Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. My essay and peer comments are here and again, I generally agree with the comments. In the essay, I try to make an observation about the logic that Dodgson uses in the books.

Namely, I used a construction of logical implication, , (I really like WordPress’ inline ). So, in the essay I compare the implication, false implies true (which is a *true*) statement, with the stories in *Alice*. One of the students, who said he was a mathematician disagreed with that comment, and after review, I still think I was right 🙂

Taking the example from this great reference (pages 8-9), the statement, “If pigs can fly, then you can understand the Chebyshev bound,” is *true*. Here we have where “if pigs can fly” and “then you can understand the Chebyshev bound.” Which is the case, .

The converse, (as I mention in the essay), is not true, that is: “if you can understand the Chebyshev bound, then pigs can fly.” ().

I’ll give the reviewer credit in that my argument is not strongly made and is confusing. With a word limit of 320, it’s a challenge to capture a succinct idea, more so than one may think. I’m still enjoying the class and as you can tell from the comments, peer reviewers put significant time into the remarks, which I greatly appreciate (even if I disagree).

Unfortunately, I missed my Dracula submission, but I’m nearly finished with Frankenstein and I have some ideas tossing around, so I should be back on track soon!
