Philosophy | Thinking and Reasoning
P105 | 3354 | Keele


This class will equip the student with techniques and tools for evaluating
arguments, whatever his/her particular field happens to be.  Learn how to
analyze and critique reasoning systematically and effectively, and amaze your
friends with your command of such topics as validity, fallacy detection,
syllogisms, etc.  This is an excellent course for those who want to go into law,
business, medicine, or any of the traditional humanities or sciences.  Since good
reasoning is necessary for excellence in any discipline, success in this class will
insure excellence in your field as well.  (Note:  The previous statement contains a
fallacious inference - unless you can say what that fallacy is and why it is a bad
piece of reasoning, you need this class.)
