What is the course about?

Fallacies are bad arguments, but they seem good and can mislead us into making bad decisions. Fallacies can be employed at work, by colleagues, clients, business partners, bosses. We can also face fallacies outside the job, from virtually everybody: TV ads, politicians, even our own spouses. We can also deceive ourselves.

Course content

How did you manage to deceive your clients for so long?
I will not take suggestiosn from a junior!
But Germany is led by a woman!
My aunt smoked two packs a day

Work from Home
10 fair play principles in argumentation
Outsmart this final quiz!

What will you learn?

In this course we will learn how to recognize and resist the most common 15 fallacies, from Loaded Question and Slippery Slope to Red Herring and Straw Man.

Each fallacy is illustrated with examples, funny dialogues, a case study discourse, and there's even a quiz show at the end to test your knowledge.

We describe the mechanism for each of these rational traps, and we learn proper ways to refute it.

Fallacies are like crime novels: if you know who the killer is, the whole plot seems transparent. In the same manner, this course acts like a vaccine: once we learn to recognize and counteract a fallacy, we cannot be deceived again. Enjoy!

What is the target audience?

This course is recommended for anybody who would like to improve their business communication skills.
