Overview

The word “argument” can mean a quarrel between people or a lawyer’s plea in court. In the field of critical thinking, an argument – like an assumption – is an expected part of the process that leads to a well-thought-out conclusion and logical outcome. You and others regularly argue – because you want to support a point of view or raise an issue. An argument usually has a reasoning and a conclusive statement, which requires both exploration and questioning. When you say or hear words like “this is because” or “therefore, therefore” – you usually argue or face an argument. In this course, you will learn to identify arguments, recognize persuasion techniques, explore arguments for accuracy and logic, and present your own arguments.

 

Objectives

  • differentiate between argumentative and non-argumentative statements
  • assess the accuracy and logic of an argument
  • evaluate an argument for possible subjectivity and persuasion techniques
  • choose the best argument to support a conclusion
  • present good arguments
