PHIL 100 - Critical Thinking

The primary aim of the course is to develop awareness about what is involved in reasoning well. The student will learn (1) to sort claims according to the kinds of evidence that could be used to establish their truth, and the kinds of expertise that would be relevant to evaluating this evidence, and (2) to evaluate arguments of various kinds (identify when an argument is being made, what its conclusion is, what the logical relation between premises and conclusion is purported to be, whether the premises are plausible, and whether the conclusion is established).
