Hiiii glad they help! Well, I've kinda stopped taking notes half way through every lecture so my notes aren't good (and I don't find the information exam relevant either so I don't think I will go back to edit my notes or add anything to them from the slides...) so I don't think I will share them, sorry about that! :D
I think that two propositions are logically equivalent when they have same truth values regardless of the truth values of their components.
So here in this example, you can see that the truth values of the components (for L and K) are different but it doesn't matter because these two propositions have the same truth values (the ones that are inside the blue rectangle).
Think about it like they use different ingredients but end up with the same product.
Hope that's what you meant.
Don't underestimate the literature, the exam is going to be: content, history, argument mapping, fallacies, debate skills, propositions, and syllogisms. Study the content + history, and for the rest, practice is key

Hey pals, I kinda struggle with this course. I really don't know how to prepare properly or what to focus on... Any ideas maybe? :(
For the logic part, do as much of the assignments in the book as possible (they have solutions for ~1/3 of the examples - and often the solutions includes multiple steps) and for the other tasks, so the articles, write down what which person said and know the approx. timeline, then you should be more than fine :)

yeah agree practice for tasks 7,8,9 and for the rest make summaries with the most important info..also flash cards with the different fallacies would help
EG 11 In arguing his case that abortion is not personal moral choice, Frank
Pavone, the director of Priests for Life, wrote the following passage:
“Abortion is our problem, and the problem of every human being. We are one
human family. Nobody can be neutral on abortion. It involves the destruction of
an entire group of human beings!”
This sounds logical and convincing, but it contains a well know reasoning error.
A ) petitio principii (it is a case of circular reasoning or ‘Begging the question’)
Why is it answer A? Can someone explain it :(
I have no idea because I wondered the same. But regarding the other answers this is the one suiting best for me, even though there is no implicit questions :-)

I definitely don't know how to prepare for the resit :/ I don't know what I can do differently to what I did for the last exam.
Does anyone have good tips? I really have to pass this exam because otherwise I loose my spot for going abroad :(
if you have in one course of the same year a grade equal or higher than 8 and did not pass another course which does give equal or fewer ECTs you can freeze that course, meaning you officially passed it with a 6.0. But you can do it only once during the whole Bachelor.
