PHIL 2275 - Introduction to Logic and Critical Reasoning


Credit Hours: 3
This course is an introduction to the study of arguments and critical reasoning, as well as how they occur in real-life contexts. Students are expected to learn the role and importance of arguments, how to recognize when arguments are being offered (as opposed, say, to definitions or explanations), how to extract and reconstruct them from their natural language settings, how to classify arguments, how to distinguish between good arguments and fallacious ones, and how to use them well. (Students preparing for the study of law will find this course especially helpful.) Elective Course
