This is the objective analysis of facts to form a judgment. The subject is complex, and several different definitions exist, which generally include the rational, sceptical, unbiased analysis, or evaluation of factual evidence .
Logical thinking can be self-directed, self-disciplined self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking. It entails effective communication and problem solving abilities, as well as a commitment to overcoming our personal judgements.
This module looks at reasoning as a way of forming a judgement of something. It explores deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning and inference.
