Are you confident you can reason clearly? Are you able to convince others of your point of view? Are you able to give plausible reasons for believing what you believe? Do you sometimes read arguments in the newspapers, hear them on the television, or in the pub and wish you knew how to confidently evaluate them? In this six-part course, you will learn all about arguments, how to identify them, how to evaluate them, and how not to mistake bad arguments for good. Such skills are invaluable if you are concerned about the truth of your beliefs, and the cogency of your arguments.

Customer Reviews


Absolutely brilliant set of lectures! An invaluable resource for anyone who has any interest in improving themselves intellectually.

Great class live, terrible podcast

The professor encourages the students to engage from an intuitive perspective, but since they have no training in formal logic, their comments are usually misguided and of no consequence for the listener. This is surely a fun course in person, but it does not work as a podcast.
The worst thing about the lectures is that
I CAN’T HEAR THE STUDENTS, SO THE PROFESSOR’S TALK BECOMES FRAGMENTED AND LOSES MEANING SINCE YOU ONLY HEAR HALF THE CONVERSATION. To make things worse, I can’t even hear the professor half the time since she keeps milling about the class to engage with the students and thus walking away from the microphone.
A discussion section does not work as a podcast. Since you can’t give all participants a professional microphone, only lectures make good podcasts.
