Critical Thinking

Spring 2019

Taught By: Masha Tupitsyn

Section: A

CRN: 4314

Credits: 3

In this course, we study and apply the principles and methods that distinguish good reasoning from poor reasoning. Working with this toolkit of techniques for evaluating arguments, we examine the logic that shapes contemporary debates about politics, media, art, and science. As a complement to the practical nature of this exercise, we also reflect on the psychological structures that make critical thinking an essential aspect of constructive civic engagement and human well-being in general.
