Philosophy | Thinking and Reasoning
P105 | 3745 | Kimble

In this course we will study the basic elements in correct
reasoning, drawing on notions from both informal and formal logic.
Students will learn how to recognize and identify arguments, analyze
various argument sturctures, detect fallacies, and assess the
validity and strength of arguments by applying various formal and
informal procedures.  We will rigorously apply these tools and
methods in evaluating "every day life" examples of reasoning and

Written work for the course will consists of regular home work
assignments, quizzes, and three exams.
