Logic

Logic is the analysis and appraisal of arguments. It examines, sets standards, and develops techniques for thinking. This class explores logic as an aid to listening and reading attentively, to writing and speaking clearly, and to arguing both critically and constructively. It prepares students to take the logical portions of the LSAT exams.  Last, it introduces students to some of the philosophical angles on logic.
