Register for PHIL 248: Introduction to Scientific Reasoning and discover what guides your judgement and how you reason. How do you decide on a course of action? What logical process do you take to form a conclusion? In PHIL 248, students discuss several fascinating issues, including deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning, and the justification of inductive inferences, examples of inductive reasoning, the nature of science and its evolution, and more.
PHIL 248 is offered during the 2016 Winter Session, and fulfills an Arts and Humanities general education requirement (GEP). This is a hybrid course – the class will meet in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Part of the class will be conducted online.
