Other information

Critical thinking skills help us to identify and evaluate various patterns of thought (including patterns of reasoning) and their expression. We will work through a number of sets of short examples – some good and some not so good, some genuine and some invented, some topical and some timeless.
TUTOR: Douglas has philosophy degrees from Monash University (MA) and the University of St Andrews, Scotland (PhD). He taught philosophy at Melbourne State College and then for many years at the University of Melbourne. He has been joyfully involved at U3APP since 2018.
