Functional logic” is a coherent conceptual arrangement, which is based on a process designed to fulfil a task, a meaning or a purpose, which is based on a rational justification and in which the compliance with a consistent set of conclusions is reflected.

The term “functional logic” applies in particular to systems. The “functional logic” of a system is the coherent conceptual arrangement of the flow of the interaction of all the elements connected to each other that constitute this system, which makes it possible to fulfil the task, the meaning or the purpose of the system, whereby this conceptual arrangement derives its coherence from the fact that it is based on a rational justification and in which the compliance with a consistent set of conclusions is reflected.
