Logic, semester 1 $170/semester!
Description: Using the popular Traditional Logic texts by Martin Cothran, this class covers the basic concepts of formal logic. In the course of the year both books I and II will be covered. Great emphasis will be placed on games, drill, and discussion during class times, which helps fix the concepts in the students’ memories and habituate them to their use. The content covered begins with simple apprehension of things and moves through the study of simple syllogisms to complex syllogisms and then to the application of this new knowledge to various case studies. The texts will be supplemented with materials provided by the instructor. The class includes weekly assignments from the text, quizzes, tests, argument analysis, and other activities.
