The premise of this course is that critical thinking is not just a matter of logical analysis, but necessarily includes elements of creative reflection. As a supplement to the main text, Understanding Arguments, which discusses language in terms of what language does, we will be considering various views of how creativity functions in the arts and sciences, and by extension, in thinking critically.
