Critical Thinking

In the age of 'fake-news' and the dissemination of 'distruth', how do we begin to decipher a good
point from a bad one, a convincing claim from a baseless one? This 10-hour course focuses on how to identify an argument; how to judge it as good or bad, convincing or unconvincing; how to identify weaknesses and strenghts; how to deal with difficult jargon; how the medium affects the message; and how to respond clearly and critically to all the complications of communication.
Each week we will look at one or two texts, some philosophical and some from the media of today,
