PHIL 207 Logic

Credit by exam. (First semester/3 credits) 

An introduction to informal and formal logic. This course aims at strengthening students’ ability to think critically and to assess the soundness and validity of arguments. Informal logic uses ordinary language to identify, analyze and evaluate the arguments used in everyday reasoning. It also identifies and explains many of the common fallacies found in such reasoning. Formal logic uses symbolic notation to study valid inference and to enable students to recognize, analyze and construct valid arguments. (Particularly recommended for students taking the LSAT.)
