Description:
“Calling B.S.: How Do We Believe Responsibly?” is a four-week course that starts March 25 and will address issues society wrestles with as well as help participants think critically and create informed ideas.

Montana State University professor Kristen Intemann will lead a new four-week course called “Calling B.S.: How Do We Believe Responsibly?” which is open to all community members and MSU students. The course will run on Monday evenings from March 25 until April 15.

The course will address some of the issues society wrestles with, including climate change, vaccinations, voter fraud and nutritional claims. Through respectful discussion and dialogue, participants will learn to recognize when experts and evidence might be misleading and also train themselves to think more critically and responsibly.

The course is designed for people of all views and backgrounds. Participants will review contrasting positions while thinking critically, practice formulating their own views, express those views clearly and convincingly and listen respectfully to classmates’ ideas.

The course is $79 per person and $29 for currently enrolled MSU students. To register or for more information, please visit http://ato.montana.edu/enrich and look for “Calling B.S.”

Intemann is a professor of philosophy at MSU in the College of Letters and Science. She is also an adviser to the award-winning Ethicats team, where students learn to debate a variety of philosophical issues. She is the recent co-author of “The Fight Against Doubt,” which examines the gap between scientists and the public.
