Critical Reasoning: Religion in Public Life


Fall 2012 quarter

Stephen Beck philosophy
Fields of Study
philosophy and writing
Preparatory for studies or careers in
humanities, philosophy, or any further college-level study.

In this writing intensive course, students will learn how to critically evaluate persuasive writing as well as how to compose well-reasoned, persuasive writing of their own. This quarter, we will focus on the theme of religion in public life, and we will read and critique arguments drawn from several texts on this theme. Students will study both formal and informal reasoning, apply what they learn to selections of writing drawn from popular and academic sources, critique the arguments in those sources, read and critique each other's writing, and develop their abilities to give good reasons in writing for their own views. Credit will be awarded in critical reasoning.
