PHIL 200 - Deductive Logic

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, QFR

What makes an argument a good or a bad one? We will explore the idea that the answer depends on the underlying structure of the argument, and develop a formal language which allows us to bring out that structure. Students will thus acquire an increased ability to critically evaluate arguments in any sphere. A grasp of the essential elements of symbolic logic is also vital for anyone wishing to grapple seriously with contemporary Anglophone philosophy.

Enrollment Limit: 30
