This course offers a comprehensive introduction to critical thinking. Students gain knowledge of deductive and inductive arguments, evaluate the strength of premises, and analyze arguments. The role of language in critical thinking is emphasized. Other topics include categorical statements and syllogisms, compound statements and syllogisms, fallacies of relevance, and fallacies of insufficient evidence. Students explore the basics of critical thinking in research and discover how to construct and write arguments. The course concludes with practical advice on how to be a critical consumer of media messages, in addition to identifying pseudoscientific claims.
