THINK AGAIN I: HOW TO UNDERSTAND ARGUMENTS

THINK AGAIN II: HOW TO REASON DEDUCTIVELY

THINK AGAIN III: HOW TO REASON INDUCTIVELY

THINK AGAIN IV: HOW TO AVOID FALLACIES

Reasoning is important. This series of four short courses will teach you how to do it well. You will learn simple but vital rules to follow in thinking about any topic at all and common and tempting mistakes to avoid in reasoning. We will discuss how to identify, analyze, and evaluate arguments by other people (including politicians, used car salesmen, and teachers) and how to construct arguments of your own in order to help you decide what to believe or what to do. These skills will be useful in dealing with whatever matters most to you.
