Reasoning

Module Overview

Originated by: Prof Markus Pantsar

Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, establishing and verifying facts, applying logic, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, and beliefs based on new or existing information. It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophy, science, language, mathematics, and art and is normally considered to be a distinguishing ability possessed by humans. Reasoning is closely identified with the ability to self-consciously change, in terms of goals, beliefs, attitudes, traditions, and institutions, and therefore with the capacity for freedom and self-determination.

This module looks at reasoning as associated with thinking, cognition, and intellect and as a part of decision making.

We will explore

  • How we use reasoning in our everyday thinking
  • How does logic link with reasoning?
  • How do we know when we are using ‘reasoning’?
  • Logical reasoning versus the facts
  • Exploring what’s going on around us using reasoning

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment

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
