In November 2013 I gave a Weekend School at Rewley House introducing participants to formal logic.
It was very much an introduction, and I did it to help readers of my book Critical Reasoning: A Romp Through the Foothills of Logic These podcasts are audio not video, but I also recorded some short videos to supplement these podcasts, and to help readers of the book.
The short videos will also help participants on the online short course. I wrote this online course in 2013. It is being taught for the first time in Michaelmas Term (the autumn term) 2014. I will be teaching the first run, and once it is finished I’ll let you know how it has gone!
You’ll find the videos that supplement the audio podcasts below the appropriate audio podcast. There are also the transcripts for all the podcasts and the supplementary videos:
