Dear Student:
Welcome to your Instructional Internet-based course.
YOUR INSTRUCTOR: John A. Doyle, Ph.D. As your instructor, I will be assisting you throughout the course.
My educational background includes B.A. level studies in philosophy at All Hallows College, Dublin, Ireland; M.A. degree in counseling psychology from Loyola University Los Angeles; and a Ph.D. degree in Social Ethics from the University of Southern California. I am also a California licensed marriage, family and child counselor. Thinking is a common human experience; the challenge is to think well. Much of our thinking, left unexamined, is imprecise, biased, distorted, uninformed, or plain prejudiced. Yet the quality of our academic and everyday life is dependent upon the quality of our thought. The focus of this course will be to sharpen your thinking skills to where you can formulate issues and problems more clearly and precisely, and come to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions.
It is your responsibility to contact me by email (or telephone) when you need course information or assistance.

Philosophy and Humanities Department
Humanities may provide a more comparative, descriptive, and/or interdisciplinary approach to philosophical ideas than do most philosophy courses. The Department of Philosophy and Humanities has a strong commitment to interdisciplinary teaching in the humanities, to the teaching of world religions (both eastern and western), and to the history of ideas and comparative thought. Three Humanities courses are currently in the Calendar. Philosophy provides a way of connecting our thinking history with our current lives and encourages us to discover central connections among the emotional, rational, spiritual, ethical, social and cultural aspects of life. Philosophy emphasizes thinking as a pleasurable end in itself, as a critical method of inquiry, and as a way of developing creative theories and hypotheses that enable us to take a new look at things. Any Philosophy course may serve as an introduction to philosophical thinking. However, most students will prefer to have the type of foundation offered by PHIL 1101, 1102 and/or 1103 before continuing on in Philosophy. PHIL 1101 is particularly recommended, because it provides a foundation in philosophical reasoning and the theory and practice of argumentation. Philosophy courses such as PHIL 1201, 1250, 1280 and 2360 assume an even greater capacity for mature thought and independent thinking than do the 1100-level philosophy courses numbered above 1150.

Philosophy and Critical-Thinking Skills
By Charles E. Weidler
The student announced the class had no real interest in philosophy, no matter how I presented the material. For the past seven years, I have been a philosophy instructor at a working-class, Northeastern college that has a long tradition of producing primary and secondary school teachers. Last semester, I had the misfortune of teaching Introduction to Philosophy at 8 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. on Thursday nights. Most, if not all, of the students had daytime employment and were barely able to drag themselves to class at 8 o'clock, especially for an elective philosophy course. I told the students that I commiserated with them and I would try to make the course as relevant to their experiences as possible. To that end, I had the students provide a brief oral autobiography on the first night of class. Upon listening to the students, my spirits were enlivened by the fact that the vast majority of them were education majors in their junior or senior year of study and preparing for their practicums or full-time teaching. This was an ideal situation to inculcate the latest ideas on critical thinking and reasoning to individuals who would soon be teaching our youths. After all, had not several national education studies stressed the importance of critical-thinking and problem-solving skills along with logic and reason? Many of these reasoning skills have been the embodiment of philosophy since Aristotle's

Philosophy for Children
This topic is basically in its infancy in Britain. It is hard to be specific since there are no available statistics, but I estimate that there are perhaps only 100 or so schools in the country which regularly use philosophy for children as a consistent part of the curriculum. In the United States, approximately 6000 schools use this scheme. School systems in the competitive countries of the far East, for example Singapore, are showing interest in this innovation from the 1960's pioneered by Professor Matt Lipman. For the past eight years I have used it with my primary school classes for the simple reason that philosophy in itself is one of the basic activities of human beings - the questions about life - Why are we here? What is it all about? What ought I to do? etc may be ignored due to the pressures of everyday life but they are all ultimately addressed by everyone at various periods throughout their lives. Most teachers, I am sure, would acknowledge that children find problem solving very difficult. Critical Thinking skills, as attempted in Philosophy for Children techniques, tries to address this problem. But one of the most useful aspects of Philosophy for Children is that it attempts to get children to think for themselves. Teenagers in particular are under great pressure these days and it is hard for them to go against the norms of their peer group. The usual cry is that they don't think and that there is a tide of mindless violence sweeping society.

Statement of Teaching Philosophy
Robert W. Jensen
April 2001
When students preface their comments in the classroom with that phrase, I always stop them.
This sometimes is called the teaching of critical thinking, and it shapes not only the way I respond to student comments but the way I lecture and initiate discussions in class. It leads me to speak in class about my own intellectual and political views, in the hopes that in articulating and defending those views I will model for students that kind of critical engagement.
As a result of this teaching philosophy, I am sometimes criticized for being too political, both in the classroom and in public. I have been counseled by colleagues to try to be more neutral and objective. One prominent local journalist has even questioned my fitness to teach because of my public political activities.
These criticisms reveal the real issues at stake in the teaching of critical thinking. Everyone endorses the teaching of critical thinking, much like everyone endorses peace, freedom, and democracy. In the abstract, there is consensus that a university must foster critical thinking. But critical thinking about what? And critical thinking taught in what fashion? On those issues, there is far less agreement. Based on conversations with other professors and my reading of the critical thinking textbooks, I am concerned that most of the critical thinking methods steer away from the most important issues of the day and encourage professors to remain detached, from students and from controversy.

Critical Thinking and Argumentation
(version 3.1, Oct. 01)
The following are some of the basic ideas and rules of logic. In this department, unlike most others, we do not require formal logic as part of your undergraduate course. However, we do expect you to have a good, perhaps 'intuitive' familiarity with the following basic ideas. The last section of this document, section H, in particular you should consult regularly. It will provide a kind of check-list of good practice when you are looking at the arguments of other philosophers, or constructing your own. Contents:
A. What is an Argument?

B. What Kinds of Argument Are There?

C. The Role of Examples and Illustrations

D. What Are Premises?
H. What to do with arguments
A. What is an argument?
In philosophy, by 'argument' we mean 'something which attempts to prove from starting premises the truth of a conclusion'. Let us define the terms in the above definition. To Prove ' means to compel belief rationally . If something is proved, then I have no choice, as a reasonable person, but to believe it - otherwise I am not rational. For our purposes

These selections are some of our best books relating to religion, philosophy, and belief in the spiritual world. Some of these writings are controversial, and some are rather obscure; two were written by a member of the clergy. The authors represent a wide range of perspective, from a post-industrial, Euro-centric attitude of amused chagrin for the 'simple yet quaint' beliefs of the ancient Pagans, to stark incredulity at the basic, psychological need that compels humanity to worship a god.
