While I was producing the Critical Thinker Podcast I did a few episodes that where very popular but that can only be described as "special topics" -- critical thinking about conspiracy theories, God and the Big Bang, etc. In this course I've collected a few of these and made them available here.

Some elementary logic concepts are important for critical thinking. These include basic concepts of propositional logic (also known as "sentential logic" or "statement logic").This is where, for example, you learn the proper meaning of terms like "contradiction" and "consistency", which should be part of everyone's logical vocabulary. In most textbooks, this material is included as part of a much bigger discussion of formal languages and deduction systems. All of this is very interesting, but not directly relevant for critical thinking and argument analysis. So what I've done in this course is cut out that extra material and focus only on the logical terms and definitions from propositional logic that are helpful for critical thinking. For example, many fallacies can only be understood if you first understand how they are grounded in basic concepts of propositional logic. Another benefit of studying this material is that you gain a deeper understanding of the logical structure of ordinary language. I know from experience that this knowledge can improve your ability to express yourself clearly and effectively. What Will I Learn in This Course?

No matter what career you pursue, you must be able to communicate effectively and clearly if you want to be successful. This course will enhance your ability to do so by sharpening your critical thinking and writing skills. We will begin with a unit designed to change the way in which you think about writing. First, you will learn to think of writing not as a solitary act but as a conversation between yourself and an audience. In this light, writing becomes a dynamic, interactive, and creative rather than a rote practice. You will also begin to value writing as a process – an admittedly difficult one – rather than a product. You will come to see that writing is an act of discovery rather than a recitation of prefabricated ideas. Because this course is designed specifically for students in a university setting, the second unit will focus on academic writing. We will learn how to respond to an assignment or test question by using the “PWR-Writing” or “Power-Writing” Method (PWR: Pre-write, Write, Revise) while learning the ins and outs of building a solid thesis and supporting that thesis with evidence. The remaining units will focus on the minutiae of good writing practices from style to citation methodology. Because the goal of this course is to improve your ability to write clear, grammatically-sound expository and persuasive prose, every unit will include a “Grammar Capsule,” focusing on a specific grammatical issue.
