Liberal Education Core
This course is an introduction to critical thinking and to informal and formal logic. We investigate and practice the skills used in good reasoning. Students learn about the nature of arguments, fallacies, induction and deduction and other aspects of logic and critical thinking. In coming to grips with all of these, students develop their ability to identify arguments in everyday contexts, analyze and evaluate arguments and create strong arguments of their own.
