Introduction to Logic (Philosophy)
Ages 11-16, Meets 4 times, £11/session
- 44 British pounds£44
- Zoom class
Learning and reasoning as all about combining what we already know, and reaching new conclusions. But how can we know that the conclusions we reach are 'true'? How can we avoid reaching wrong conclusions? And what do we do when the conclusions we reach make no sense? Logic is the branch of philosophy concerned with reasoning and reaching conclusions. It tries to organise and analyse the way we think, and allows us to test our reasoning, and look for things that might lead us astray. In this course we will look at the basic structures of logic, examine how we can sometimes make mistakes, and look at paradoxes - when our reasoning seems to clash with what we experience. This class requires no previous knowledge or study.
We will do our utmost to ensure every booked class takes place. However, we strongly believe in the value of conversation between thinkers. Thus, we will not run a class with less than the minimum number of students. If we do not have a full group 24 hours before the class is set to start we will, sadly, cancel the session, refund all participants, and seek to run the class at a different time. Our full booking and cancellation policy can be found in our Terms and Services.
