What's the talk about?

Skeptics value rationality and critical thinking over belief and faith. It is therefore crucial to know how to apply rationality and how to use it when making arguments and also when critically assessing the arguments of others. Knowing the basics of logic and argumentation allows someone to avoid committing their own logical fallacies.

Angelos Sofocleous will explain the foundations of logic and give an analysis of what is logic through the concepts of validity, soundness in deductive logic and inductive logic, indicating their differences and outline various applications of them in the real world.

Angelos studies Philosophy and Psychology at Durham University, where he is President of Durham Humanist Students Society. He is also President-Elect of Humanist Students, the nation-wide community of humanist societies and students, part of Humanists UK.

He is editor-in-chief of Secular Nation, Atheist Alliance of America's magazine, Philosophy and Religion editor at The Bubble UK, writer and editor at progressive news platform Conatus News, and sub-editor at Palatinate UK.
