The content covered begins with simple apprehension of things and moves through the study of simple syllogisms to complex syllogisms and then to the application of this new knowledge to various case studies. The texts will be supplemented with materials provided by the instructor. The class includes weekly assignments from the text, quizzes, tests, argument analysis, and other activities.
