Critical Thinking Week 3D

Categorical Syllogisms

This week, you have learned about the importance of logical thinking and how it is foundational to critical thinking. Particular focus was given to inductive and deductive logic. The basic form of deductive thinking, the syllogism, was explored in depth. Reflect on all that was presented about categorical syllogisms. Based on your reading for this week:

  • Develop a      categorical syllogism, this should be no less than 250 words. Discuss the      meaning of the terms and/or propositions with a goal of understanding the      importance of shared meaning.
