Deductive arguments are supposed to be valid in the sense that the premises guarantee that the conclusion is true. In this course, you will learn how to use truth-tables and Venn diagrams to represent the information contained in the premises and conclusion of an argument so that you can determine whether or not the argument is deductively valid.

Principais avaliações do THINK AGAIN II: HOW TO REASON DEDUCTIVELY
Would've liked more on the truth table of the conditional.
The course is extremely useful, but I found that the instructor is redundant. I often put the video speed on 1.5x.
This entire series was informative, engaging, and fun, and the thinking skills taught are so valuable.
The quizzes were a bit difficult because some of the items weren't discussed well in the lectures. It would be better if there were more comprehensive explanations to the answers in the quizzes
Sobre Programa de cursos integrados Introduction to Logic and Critical Thinking
By taking Introduction to Logic and Critical Thinking you will improve your ability to identify, analyze, and evaluate arguments by other people (including politicians, used car salesmen, and teachers) and also to construct arguments of your own in order to convince others and to help you decide what to believe or do. This specialization introduces general standards of good reasoning and offers tools to improve your critical thinking skills. These skills will help you determine when an argument is being given, what its crucial parts are, and what it assumes implicitly. You will also learn how to apply deductive and inductive standards for assessing arguments and how to detect and avoid fallacies.
