Logic and Argumentation
Our courses are all about good argumentation, but with a focus on logic rather than rhetoric. In our course we take basic concepts of logic such as validity and soundness of arguments as a starting point from which we derive practical techniques for good argumentation. These techniques help you to
state arguments precisely and convincingly
identify logical flaws and unfair arguments
think more precisely and well structured
reflect critically on your own decisions
train analytical thinking
Critical Reasoning is already well established as an academic discipline in English-speaking countries. However, in Germany and most of Europe it has been largely ignored.
In Germany we are one of the first institutions that offer seminars on this topic.
already over 2.000 satisfied participants
over 7 years of experience
continuously developed seminar concepts
It’s all about Logic!
Many people are not aware that logic is a scientific discipline in its own right.
Logicians analyze what kinds of inferences are formally valid and what kinds of inferences are not valid.
In our seminars we introduce basic concepts of logic and apply them to arguments in science, politics and everyday-life at the office.
