PHI 210 – Critical Thinking
COURSE DESCRIPTION
Develops ability to identify, analyze, and evaluate reasoning in everyday discourse. Examines the
elements of good reasoning from both a formal and informal perspective. Introduces some formal
techniques of the basic concepts of deductive and inductive reasoning. Promotes reasoning skills
through examining arguments from literature, politics, business, and the media. Enables students to
identify common fallacies, to reflect on the use of language for the purpose of persuasion, and to think
critically about the sources and biases of the vast quantity of information that confronts us in the
“Information Age.”
