Instructor: Francesco Nappo. This course meets MW 6:00 – 7:15 p.m. in CW 103.
This course will introduce you to some effective methods for identifying, analyzing and evaluating arguments by other people and for constructing arguments of your own. Topics will include argument reconstruction, informal logic, fallacies, introductory formal logic and probabilistic reasoning. By thinking through various problems and real life examples, you will gain a better sense of how to think clearly and how to diagnose errors of judgment and choice in others and (possibly) in yourself.
