授業の概要・目的 After progressing through Logic I, students will develop more applied skills in Logic II. Basic logic concepts and deductive reasoning will be advanced toward incorporating methods of inductive reasoning. Inductive reasoning takes observations and infers a general “truth” from those observations. As an extension of the methods and principles used to identify and use reasoning, students will learn causal and probabilistic theories and methods for the evaluation of reasoning.
Concepts and skills learned in Logic II will cover methodologies used within the humanities and the sciences.
Students will actively practice:
(1) formation of comparisons for comprehension and persuasion
(2) logic applied to statistical applications
(3) logic and reasoning in academic writing and evaluation
到達目標 (1) To acquire the ability to assess an argument to determine the validity of the inductive reasoning methods.
(2) To learn to evaluate scientific writing based on the presented reasoning and statistical conclusions presented.
(3) To develop an enhanced ability to write clear and systematic arguments using systematic reasoning.
