As we have discovered in the readings for this Module (Categorical Logic), understanding the patterns of deductive reasoning lies at the very foundation of the ability to analyze arguments for strengths and weaknesses. In particular, using deductive reasoning can:

1) Illuminate and clarify our beliefs and help us consider whether those beliefs are rational.

2) Help us discover truth and make decisions.

3) Help us combat prejudice, stereotypes, and distortion of information.

In this part of our discussion, please choose one of the above mentioned uses and give an example from your own life where thinking deductively using categorical propositions can be a positive aid and help.
