Logic, fallacies & biases

The Art of Critical Thinking

About the Course

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 you can see through bullshit and discuss important ideas with confidence.

If you want to sharpen your reasoning skills, then this course is for you.
