Description
Truth, Lies, and Logical Reasoning aims to analyze and improve argumentation and reasoning as they occur in everyday life, to identify logical fallacies, and to critically examine common techniques of persuasion. The course examines logically valid forms and rules of inference, introduces deductive and inductive methods in ancient and modern logic, and elaborates the nature of definitions, categories and judgments. Students will mine their everyday lives, media, and various forms of public discourse for real-world examples of good and bad reasoning.
