PHIL 2:    Logic

Advisory: Eligible for English 1A.
Transferable: CSU; UC; CSU-GE: A3; GAV-GE: C2; CAN: PHIL 6
Philosophy 2 is intended as a survey of the primary approaches to argumentation and what has been traditionally called 'correct' reasoning. Students will learn techniques of both deductive and inductive argumentation, basic symbolic logic, how to spot a fallacy, as well as how to apply these techniques to other aspects of their lives outside of the classroom. While logic is often quite formal, the goal is to see the practical application of this discipline. Students will become acquainted with the cultural variations to reasoning in addition to the standard Western focal approach.
