Information era is becoming more and more a disinformation era. This can be harmful. On the other hand, the Nalanda tradition of Buddhism has been cultivating laser-sharp logic and reasoning for centuries and this tradition is still living in Tibetan tradition, especially in Gelugpa school.
These teachings sharpen our mind and help us to differentiate what is valid from what is merely a projection, the help us to recognize the flaws like speculation, generalizations, futile shifting from subject to subject, projections into others etc., and supports us mental discipline, cognitive precision and flexibility that comes from training in debates (antidote for dogmatism and mental dullness), they build certainty in valid perception and gradually eliminate doubt etc.
Traditionally such thorough training in logic has been accessible only to monks and nuns, but now SICGU is offering online classes available for all. The extensive classes on "The Magical Key to the Path of Reasoning" (Dura) and its accompanying debate classes are in Tibetan and English (reading ability is required and it can be taught if needed), while English The Light of Meditation classes offer brief overview of some tools of logic that can be utilized in everyday life. If you are interested, you are welcome to join us. The classes are led by experienced teachers, well structured and affordable. The time of the study is particularly suitable for those living in the US/EU/Canadian time zones.
