Learn how to spot logical mistakes in arguments - and to avoid making them yourself
We can often see tell that an argument is unconvincing - or just plain wrong - but it's not always easy to work out why.
This workshop will focus on the vices that often accompany our modes of thought. Although these vices can best be understood as slippages or mistakes in our faculty to draw inferences, they are not always easy to spot. Thus, in learning how to formally identify these slippages or mistakes, you will also learn how to avoid making them when developing an argument of your own.
Our workshops run all year round at our Helpdesk in the Silberrad Student Centre, and cover all aspects of academic skills, maths and statistics. You can also book a 1:1 appointment with an advisor to talk over anything in your studies that you need help with.
