About the Course:
Reasoning is important. This course will teach you how to do it well. You will learn some simple but vital rules to follow in thinking about any topic at all and some common and tempting mistakes to avoid in reasoning. We will discuss how to identify, analyze, and evaluate arguments by other people (including politicians, used car salesmen, and teachers) and how to construct arguments of your own in order to help you decide what to believe or what to do. These skills will be useful in dealing with whatever matters most to you.
This material is appropriate for introductory college students or advanced high school students-or, indeed, anyone who is interested. No special background is required other than knowledge of English.
Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Ram Neta will be course instructors. Course workload will be 5-6 hours/week. It will be taught in English and subtitles will be available in English.
