How to Enroll

This course provides a practical introduction to analytical reasoning. In it, we examine the nature of good reasons, and acquire a method for systematically reconstructing and evaluating the types of arguments we encounter every day in our college courses, in newspaper editorials, and in political speeches, e.g. We learn about philosophical topics such as the relation between truth and rationality, and whether we can argue logically about morality. We also examine some of the fallacies, cognitive biases, and misleading rhetoric that commonly enter into our reasoning.
