Logic is the art and science of reasoning well. It focuses on finding and using good reasons for believing something’s true. Logic I, using the Veritas Press logic curriculum, focuses on informal logic. Students are equipped to analyze and construct arguments in common, natural language using inductive reasoning. This course covers the nature of truth, means of knowing, and the justification of belief. Logic I also covers common hurdles to sound thinking and reasonable inference. Chief among these are cognitive biases and (informal) logical fallacies. Learning logic is one of the most critical facets in learning to think. This course should not be missed. Formal logic is then studied in Logic II Veritas. Homework will average 3 - 4 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on the first day of class.
