So, why us?

For over seven years Think Inc. has spread ideas through highly produced large-scale public events with the world’s greatest minds. 

Now we’re driven to apply our expertise to building world-class short courses that empower individuals with the critical skills they need to navigate the chaos of modern life.

At Think Inc. Academy, we’re changing that. In our live and interactive online courses, you’ll discover expert instructors, interesting topics, and a vibrant community of thinkers.

Logic, fallacies & biases: The art of critical thinking

The ability to see the world as it is, not the way we want it to be.

Logic, Fallacies, & Biases: The Art of Critical Thinking is a four-week course in rationality, showing you how to evaluate sources, weigh evidence, and reason logically. Our aim is not to teach you what to think, but how to think.

We’re constantly bombarded with poorly researched news and opinions that it makes it almost impossible to know what to believe anymore. Not only that, but our core beliefs and assumptions are being tested almost daily with the extreme left and right crying out about injustices past and perceived.

This course will teach you how to distinguish rational arguments from mere rhetoric. It will give you a system for critically evaluating arguments and aligning your beliefs with reality, so that you can see through bullsh*t and discuss important ideas with confidence. If you want to upgrade your mind and sharpen your reasoning skills, then this is the perfect course for you.

What’s the course structure? 4x 90-minute sessions with only thirty students per class. The course takes place in our virtual classroom over Zoom. It is a live and interactive course featuring lectures and reading material, Q&A sessions with the instructor, as well as breakout rooms with your intellectually curious classmates.
