Without critical thinking, there would be no vetting or refinement of claims or opinions. We could never arrive at the 'truth' of a matter, both for ourselves and for society. In a society that shuns critical thinking, irrational and destructive claims would not come under scrutiny and would not be open for debate.
Critical thinking is therefore a crucial skill for any individual to possess. This self-paced workshop is a fundamental.
By the end of this course, you'll learn:
- The core concepts of critical thinking;
- How to construct coherent arguments and argument maps;
- How to identify poor arguments through logical fallacies
