Some hold that the fish stocks in Loch Ness are not big enough to feed a monster, therefore a monster does not exist. In my opinion, they confuse cause and effect. It is perfectly obvious to me that the reason why the fish stocks are low is that the monster keeps eating them.” If you’d like to improve the quality of your logical thinking and argumentation (‘reason giving’), then this course is exactly what you need. You’ll learn how to formulate valid reasoning, how to examine and evaluate an argument critically, and how to avoid fallacies, i.e. logical errors common in our daily use of language.
