Critical Reasoning
CMN 100 (Offering: 2003)


Complex arguments need specific skills for their identification and evaluation. Topics covered include: the identification and interpretation of arguments, analysis of fallacious reasoning, the concept of validity, the evaluation of deductively valid arguments, and the evaluation of inductive arguments. The course focuses on the kinds of arguments that students will encounter at university and in the media. Arguments from topical debates, as well as those relevant to students' other areas of study, are used as examples and exercises.
