The Basics of Logic
13 yrs and up, $175, 14 week course– Prerequisite: One Intermediate Level course
Why did God give man a reasonable mind, the ancients asked, if not for the purpose of discovering the source of truth? Students will use discussion to stretch themselves in the art of clear thinking, grow in their ability to pursue the truth rationally, articulately, and persuasively, and recognize faulty thinking when they see it. In a world where communication grows ever more easy, this course will challenge students to know how to communicate well, discuss appropriately, and not shy from alternate opinions, but rather welcome them because they facilitate meaningful connections and open dialogue.
