College Ready: Critical Reasoning

Upcoming dates (1)

For registration assistance: 608-890-3260


Human beings engage in reasoning all of the time, and improving our reasoning can be exceedingly difficult. In this course, students will examine their own reasons for believing what they believe, with an eye to determining which of their beliefs needs to be changed and how to go about changing them. We will examine the ways human reasoning tends to go wrong, how to identify instances of good and poor reasoning, and how to improve one's own reasoning.
