Course Description

From the 2016 CTY Summer Catalog:

Students learn to produce valid arguments and to differentiate valid from fallacious reasoning. They apply these skills to texts such as Plato’s writings about the trial and death of Socrates, political speeches, and current events blogs. Students participate in discussions, work problem sets, write proofs, and construct arguments relevant to current topics in both philosophy and modern society, substantially strengthening their analytical-reasoning and critical-thinking skills.

Note: While this is a humanities class, students are asked to use symbolic notation and write proofs, much like they do in math classes.
