PART II: HOW TO EVALUATE DEDUCTIVE ARGUMENTS
Week 4 (February 2 – 9): Propositional Logic and Truth Tables
CONTENT: This week’s lectures will present propositional logic, which formalizes external relations between whole propositions or sentences in deductive arguments. Topics include negation (“not”), conjunction (“and”), disjunction (“or”), and conditionals (“if…, then …”). Students will learn to test arguments for validity using truth tables. READING: Understanding Arguments, Ninth Edition, Chapter 6
Week 5 (February 10 – 16): Categorical Logic and Syllogisms
CONTENT: This week’s lectures will present categorical logic, which formalizes some deductive relations that depend on internal features of propositions or sentences in deductive arguments. Topics include the four basic categorical forms, contradictory and contrary propositions, existential commitment, immediate inferences, and syllogisms. Students will learn to test arguments for validity using Venn diagrams. READING: Understanding Arguments, Ninth Edition, Chapter 7
Week 6 (February 17 – 23): Representing Information
CONTENT: This week’s lectures will discuss the different ways to represent information, and how different ways of representing information can be useful in helping us to understand why some deductive arguments are valid and other are invalid, even if we don't fully understand those arguments. Topics include a review of truth-tables, Venn diagrams, and the point of using these tools to represent information that can also be represented in sentences.
