Introduction to Epistemological Concepts
The live portion of this class will be scheduled Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time to accommodate home schoolers and students. The first live class will be on March 7th. However you don’t need to participate in the live classes to take a course with us. Your payment will give you access to all ongoing course materials and videos.
The course will have a monthly recurring fee of $42 per month while the class is broadcasting live sessions. At some point the course will stop and you will not be charged anymore. That time will lock down the total fee of the course. You’re welcome to jump into an ongoing live course at any point, just be aware that your payments will continue after the live sessions end until you’ve completed the full course tuition. You will retain access to the videos and course materials indefinitely after your full purchase.
In today’s world, critical thinking is no longer required or even desired in modern academia. Instead, the student is taught to regurgitate the approved narrative. However, critical thinking is the hallmark of intelligence and the most effective tool by which mankind succeeds in living. Remember, we cannot compete with almost any animal in the wild based upon our instincts; man’s survival is directly dependent upon his intellect, and the skills of intelligence are called critical thinking. Critical Thinking – Part I will be introducing epistemological concepts – epistemology being the nature of thought. Over an 8 week course we will learn the foundations of thought and arrive at clear definitions, which will lay the groundwork for later teachings in deductive reasoning and symbolic logic, inductive reasoning and empiricism, logical fallacies, Eucludean concepts, and the geometry of existence, language and rhetoric, and finally, creativity and conceptualization.
