We started with a recap of the definition of argument, skill, talent and knowledge which was taught in the
previous class. In 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.
