Fall 2020 Courses
PHIL 1210: Critical Reasoning
Need some exercise? Critical reasoning is a form of mental gymnastics. It helps to solve problems, ask questions, organize our thoughts, and express ourselves clearly and defensibly. Interested in learning argument construction and analysis, a little logic, something about fallacies, and an occasional look at problems and places in the world?
A study of the principles of correct reasoning: induction, deduction, formal and informal fallacies. Critical reasoning is excellent preparation for the LSAT and the reasoning portions of other examinations for graduate study.
