COURSE NAME
Thinking Critically: Getting Your Arms around Arguments
DESCRIPTION

** This Skillsoft course is rated for EVERYONE use ** The word 'argument' can mean a spat between people, or a lawyer's statement in court. In the field of critical thinking, an argument like an assumption is an expected part of the process of reaching a logical, well-thought-out conclusion and outcome. You and others regularly make arguments because you want to make a point, or move an issue forward. An argument typically has a rationale and a conclusive statement, both deserving of exploration and questioning. When you say or hear words such as 'this is because' or 'so, therefore' you're usually making or facing an argument. In this course, you'll learn to identify arguments, recognize persuasion techniques, explore arguments for accuracy and logic, and marshal arguments of your own.
