PHL 100 Introduction to Logic
3 hours; 3 credits
Identification and critical evaluation of arguments in philosophical, scientific, and ordinary contexts from a logical point of view. They will do so by learning about various kinds of arguments (deductive, inductive, abductive, deductive-hypothetico, etc.), the logical principles which underlie good arguments, the logical fallacies which render arguments defective, and more. They will learn about these things both directly (through examination and discussion of a logic textbook) and indirectly (through examination and discussion of philosophical, scientific, and other works which may be evaluated from a logical point of view). (social science) (FSWR) NOTE: PHL 100 can be used to satisfy the sixth area of the Flexible Core.
