The complexity and diversity of the nature of thinking determines the variety of possible approaches when considering the culture of thinking of the individual. When one focuses on the logical side of thinking, the culture acts as the ability to use formal logical rules which is very important for shaping the future social worker and psychologist. Experience shows that studying logic fosters the emergence of self-consciousness, intellectual development of personality, formation of scientific worldview. The acquisition of logical knowledge and its skillful usage in practice helps to understand patterns and interrelations of phenomena of social life, to maintain a reasoned debate, and to assert a true judgment.
