Formal Logic

taught by Thomas McCuddy

Course description

Formal logic considers the forms of arguments as opposed to material logic which is concerned with actual material and essences. As such, this workshop will teach the rules of formal logic, syllogistic thinking, and the attending formal fallacies. Some material fallacies will be considered because of their frequency. 

This workshop will be some work! Each week, participants will need to practice what they learned if they wish to learn formal logic. Every subject has concepts that must be learned, but formal logic teaches skills of correct thinking, so participants must practice those skills to gain proficiency. 

The first coaching group is January 13, 2020 at 8:30PM EST.
