H1887: Logical Fallacies in BC Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 03, 2019)
Do you like to argue? Do you like to win when you argue? This course is perfect for just this pursuit. In this class, you will learn how to go beyond simply telling someone in an argument that they are wrong, you will learn several ways to point out flaws in your opponent's logic. There are few things more satisfying than declaring in an argument, "Not only are you wrong, but here is the error in your reasoning..." The second part of the class will be focused on what is perhaps the most controversial logical topic related to fallacious argument: induction. After the course, students can expect to leave feeling more confident in their ability to reason, to have an understanding of the basic syllogism, and to develop an inspiration for questioning the methods by which we practice natural philosophy and modern science.
