강좌 소개

We encounter fallacies almost everywhere we look. Politicians, salespeople, and children commonly use fallacies in order to get you to think whatever they want you to think. It’s important to learn to recognize fallacies so that you can avoid being fooled by them. It’s also important to learn about fallacies so that you avoid making fallacious arguments yourself. This course will show you how to identify and avoid many of the fallacies that lead people astray. In this course, you will learn about fallacies. Fallacies are arguments that suffer from one or more common but avoidable defects: equivocation, circularity, vagueness, etc. It’s important to learn about fallacies so that you can recognize them when you see them, and not be fooled by them. It’s also important to learn about fallacies so that you avoid making fallacious arguments yourself. Suggested Readings Students who want more detailed explanations or additional exercises or who want to explore these topics in more depth should consult Understanding Arguments: An Introduction to Informal Logic, Ninth Edition, Concise, Chapters 13-17, by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Robert Fogelin. Course Format Each week will be divided into multiple video segments that can be viewed separately or in groups. There will be short ungraded quizzes after each segment (to check comprehension) and a longer graded quiz at the end of the course....

I deepened my understanding of arguments by studying Think Again IV.

While Think Again I~III focused on good arguments, this course taught bad arguments. We learned how to criticize an argument by recognizing fallacies and refutation. The professor not only presented good examples of bad arguments, but also explained when we can encounter those bad arguments, which I enjoyed. Partially because my native language is not English, I had some challenges on the semantic and syntactic ambiguity.

Overall, I learned a lot about arguments by completing the entire series. I would like to thank the professors for creating this course!

Very interesting course with great lecturers and great examples. I do wish there were more real life/ everyday examples to help me understand the difference between different fallacies/arguments in real life but overall this has still made me notice how some arguments are a fallacy and how I could refute them

Really liked the way we got to write out our own argument once we completed everything. Ram was engaging, yet there were times it seemed he was about to explain a topic in depth with examples, yet would go into the next lecture without really explaining like I needed.

Interesting course although it might get too technical at times when it could have been by common sense/reasoning - and a great way to end the course with that video!

The course is great, but i think it should include more problems or quizzes to apply what is learned in the lectures.

lack of examples for bad arguments of particular type after saying we're going to look at some examples, as if parts of the course are missing. Quiz on material not covered.
