    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lessons I learned from Introduction to Logic made me a much better Analytical thinker. Before this class, I was not so good at making logical decisions. But the philosophical and sociological theories I learned from this class made me much more engaged in debates. Beyond the reading and writing, I think Introduction of Logic made me a better observer and listener. This class also enhanced my ability to empathize and appreciate different perspectives to the same situation, even if I don’t necessarily agree with them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about logical fallacies, such as begging the question, slippery slope , and burden of proof. These and about 50 others have improved my Listening Skills, Validly in Arguments and Critical Reasoning. How many times have you heard someone trying to make an argument by citing several examples, which you counter with a fact that could disprove their point, and they respond: “That’s the exception that proves the rule,” which is of course logically impossible. “Prove” in this smug response actually means “tests,” and your exception in no way actually bolsters their argument.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would encourage students to read everything that is assigned to them to understand the content, ask questions if they do not understand, be open minded when taking this course, always study, and do not procrastinate.
