PHIL 240 is to equip students with an understanding of the conditions that constitute good reasoning, and also the skill to construct good arguments in writing.   It covers the following four areas: the nature of logical arguments, deduction (e.g., syllogism, propositional logic), induction (e.g., analogical reasoning, causal inference), and fallacies.
