In this paper, we express the logarithmic invariant of knots in terms of derivatives of the colored Jones invariants. Logarithmic invariant is defined by using the Jacobson radicals of the restricted quantum group Ūξ (sl2) where ξ is a root of unity. We also propose a version of the volume conjecture stating a relation between the logarithmic invariants and the hyperbolic volumes of the cone manifolds along a knot, which is proved for the figure-eight knot.
