I enjoyed the course immensely as it opened my mind to different facets of critical thinking and ways of analysing the true content of material to be discussed. The examples proposed by the different Professors were fascinating in presenting pro and contra viewpoints of an argument.

The course certainly met my objectives and it was time well invested.

What you will find here is good, really. But only very few thing are mentioned. Scope is not that wide.
