There is the symbolization of arguments...

To symbolize an entire argument, we symbolize each of the propositions composing it, putting commas between the premises and a '∴' between the premises and the conclusion. Conventions adopted between symbols and atomic propositions are used uniformly throughout an entire argument.

There is the search for a counter-example...

Drawing up a 'long' truth-table... Or use the black art of transferring truth-values inward... Perhaps also using the 'satisfiability' of the set of formulas which has in it the premises and the negation of the conclusion.
