Effective Reasoning – Teaching Company

I love to converse in argument. Done well, it is instructive and all parties involved may learn something, even if it is only the strengthening of their own opinion. Hopefully though, it leads to greater insight about the world and others in it, and in the best cases there is eventually a meeting of the minds.

Sadly, it seems to be a bit of a lost art. There is a great course available from the Teaching Company on it, Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning. I enjoyed it immensely this summer on my long commute.
