How well exactly do we reason? Why can some people argue really well? How can two fully reasonable people fundamentally disagree over issues? Why do we sometimes face arguments that feel wrong but we don't know why?

How do people manipulate us? What trickery do they use? Where does our thinking go wrong? This course will explore different types of mistakes and errors in reasoning, as well the ways the people try to deliberately deceive.

Michael Couch is a Philosophy lecturer at Canterbury University.
