Students in Logic 2 continue the life-long journey of learning how to think with excellence. As they study the science and art of thinking well, students both analyze and build arguments. In the first part of this course, students examine some of the most famous and influential arguments in Western literature, including those in the Bible. They analyze structure and soundness, and evaluate the essential elements of an excellent argument. In the second part of the course, students begin building their own arguments and testing them in debates and related activities.

Topics include: types of arguments; structure, validity and soundness of arguments; building arguments from a biblical worldview; expressing arguments in conversation and writing.
