Learn to identify and assess arguments, both deductive and probabilistic. Learn the key inference patterns that underlie nearly all arguments. Learn what behavioral economics teaches us about the traps our common sense falls into. Learn how to assess evidence more accurately and make your critiques of other people more effective; learn how to best use evidence to make your own arguments more cogent. The course draws on material from philosophy, cognitive psychology and behavioral economics.
