This course is designed to help students begin the process of thinking logically and learning the proper way to compose an argument. In addition, students study basic teachings of Plato, and Aristotle. They also receive an introduction to the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. In particular, they study Aquinas' proofs for the existence of God.
This course is a crucial part of our pedagogy in that it helps students concretely understand the relationship between faith and reason. Finally, it provides students the necessary tools to begin to think critically-an indispensable element to the dialectic stage in a classical curriculum.
