Philosophy | Thinking and Reasoning
P105 | 0477 | Jain


This summer, take a class that will actually help you to think more clearly, argue more
convincingly and write more effectively.  In this class we will discuss the nature of good
reasoning and thinking.  You will learn techniques for systematically analyzing and
evaluating pieces of reasoning, and you will dazzle your friends with your command of
such topics as fallacy recognition, validity and syllogisms.  This is an excellent class for
anyone who wants to go into law, business, medicine or academia.  So make the most of
your summer  take P105!

Assessment for the class will be based on regular homework, group assignments and
quizzes.  The required text for the class will be a Xeroxed course packet available for
Collegiate Copies.
