This module is designed to provide students with the basic tools that they need in order to study philosophy effectively in a university context. These tools include the understanding of a series of basic philosophical concepts that are presupposed in much philosophical debate. The concepts in question include those of a proposition, of an argument, of reason and evidence, and of rationality. The tools also include the ability to read philosophy, identify a philosophical question, and construct and evaluate a philosophical argument. As reasoning plays such a central role in philosophy a proportion of the module is devoted to critical reasoning.
