This subject is an introduction to informal logic and the nature of argument, especially as it relates to real life settings. It is designed to develop the intellectual virtues of clear thinking and rational decision making. Students will learn to accurately interpret the many types of arguments they encounter on a day to day basis, from the mundane to exotic. They will learn not only to distinguish good arguments from bad, but also to consistently construct good arguments for themselves. Students will also have the opportunity to apply their reasoning skills to a particular field of practice.
