Synopsis: The unit consists of two components, 'Reason and argument' and 'Moral issues' (i) 'Reason and argument' is concerned with the appraisal of reasons and arguments that may be used in defence of various beliefs and policies. Its objective is to develop skills in argument and critical reasoning. (ii) 'Moral issues' examines some major controversies concerning life and death issues.
