Critical Thinking Skills

Course Description: In order to provide a solid foundation for our assertions, convictions, and attitudes about the world, this course examines the nature and methods of critical thought. From formal logic to dialectical materialism, from analysing arguments to the Socratic Method, we examine several aspects of critical thinking.
