This course aims to help the student identify both correct and incorrect ways of thinking. We will analyze both formal and informal reasoning. We will also study the difference between deductive and inductive reasoning. When it is over you should be able to think a tad more clearly than before.

|There will be three major examinations and numerous small quizzes. Students will be asked to keep a journal of informal fallacies. Your grade will be figured mainly from your test, quizzes, and your journal.||However, class participation will count some as well. If you participate often (and well) in class, you will be given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to your final grade. No participation, no benefit of the doubt.|
