Learning Outcomes
A key outcome of a university education is learning how to think. This course teaches students how to think by presenting a structured philosophical framework for critically analysing the theoretical arguments of others, as well as developing and defending one's own arguments. Critical analysis skills are not only essential for a research career, but are also important in a management career, a professional career (especially management consulting), and even ordinary life. Indeed, the applications of a proper university education are limitless. Being able to think critically equips one with the means to improve the quality of one's own work, as well as the work of colleagues.
