The reason of the confusion of learners about the logic concepts such as implication, necessary condition and sufficient condition can be analyzed from the point of view of history of logic, discrepancy between ordinary language and formal logic, and reification which occurs in the process of cognition of discursive object and also indicates the necessity of a research. This study analysed the difficulties related to study and implication concept and attempted to the reflection of textbook and curriculum. Not that ordinary language makes the introduction of formal language easier, but that this study discussed the possibilities ordinary language intervenes the learning of formal language. This study additionally intended to understand learning difficulties of concrete subjects, abstract subjects and the gap between primary object and discursive object by understanding the process of sagging, encapsulating and reifying.
