How well do we reason? Why can some people argue really well? How can two fully reasonable people fundamentally disagree over moral issues? Why do we sometimes face arguments that feel wrong but we don't know why? Where does our thinking go wrong? This course will explore different types of mistakes and errors in reasoning, as well the ways that people try to deliberately deceive us. This is pertinent as we head into an election year, and as we continue to reflect on past, present and future issues.
