Semester 1 or 2 (be sure to choose your semester on your registration form)
Students will be introduced to Socratic Logic, syllogisms, and ways of forming argumentation. This will prepare students to know how to test their own ideas and ferret out those ideas which have invalid assumptions or rely on rhetoric rather than evidence. Students will practice arguments and forms of arguments in class and will be asked to identify when the teacher is making logical fallacies.
Weekly practice reinforces the concepts taught in class and the teacher is available during live office hours and by email to assist students.
