Critical Thinking #2

We started with a recap of the definition of argument, skill, talent and knowledge which was taught in the previous classIn the second critical thinking class, we learnt to identify an argument. We learnt to give reasons for a conclusion and arrive at a conclusion for given reason. We were asked to include important words like argument, reasons, conclusions, claims, premises, etc. in our 'Critical Thinking Vocabulary.' The word ‘premise’ is same as the word ‘reason’. We were taught to refute arguments. One could refute an argument by coming up with counter-claims or just find fault with the reasoning itself.
Stay tuned for more.
