King’s to Offer Peter Kreeft Logic Course Online
Students around the world able to learn from Distinguished Visiting Professor of Philosophy
NEW YORK, November 15, 2010—The King’s College is pleased to announce that it will be expanding its online course selection to include a course in Logic, formulated by Distinguished Visiting Professor of Philosophy Peter Kreeft.
“An acclaimed apologist, author, and professor, Dr. Peter Kreeft has developed his signature Logic course for the online classroom. Students will benefit from Dr. Kreeft’s lectures as well as readings from his books Socratic Logic and The Best Things in Life,” said Duanne Moeller, Chief Administrative Officer for The King’s College.
The course will include video lectures by Dr. Kreeft, as well as online discussions and exercises that will help students gain familiarity with traditional logic, its principles and its practical applications. Traditional, Aristotelian logic will be the foundation of the course, though brief introductions to inductive logic and symbolic logic will also be offered. The online instructor this spring will be Graham Dennis, who studied with Dr. Kreeft at Boston College.
“The mind is a crucial part of the image of God in us; to neglect it is an insult to God. While the study of all subject matters can fill and fulfill the mind, logic is the study of the common form of all of them. It is not primarily a gimmick for winning arguments (though it can be used for that) but the discipline of ordering and clarifying our thinking,” Dr. Kreeft said.
Logic is a great course for high school students wanting to get a head start on college credits. Other courses available online this spring will include College Writing I, Introduction to Politics, History of Western Civilization 1, and Pre-calculus.
