Logic is a key-competence for undergraduate students. It helps them to identify the crucial elements in scientific texts and to structure their own writing in a clear and straight-forward way. The starting point of our seminars are basic concepts of logic: validity and soundness of arguments, deductive vs. inductive arguments, common types of inferences and fallacies. From these basics we derive practical tips that help students to state their arguments in a maximally precise way both in texts and orally.
Every participant gets the chance to apply the acquired methods directly to their own writing and to get feedback from the group and the trainer. The seminars are especially helpful for students who are about to write a Master’s or a B.A. Thesis. Courses available in English or German.
