Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

When you pass from a statement or set of statements to a new statement by logical deduction, you are said to *infer* the new statement. Example:

(i) All dogs have four legs.

(ii) Rover is a dog.

(ii) Therefore Rover has four legs.

The last statement is an inference from the first two.
