Logical thinking

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Stefan Buijsman

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.

We will explore

  • What is reasoning?
  • What do we mean by deductive reasoning?
  • What is inductive reasoning?
  • What is inference?
  • Summing up to result in logical thinking

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
