Written by Brett Veinotte Subject: Education: Government Schools
 
Topic: Richard Grove and Tony Myers from TragedyandHope.com join me for a general introduction to the series on logical fallacies. Our discussion covers how fallacies fit into the larger picture of critical thinking principles and the trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric). We also talk about the recent Republican debates, identifying techniques used by certain candidates. And the primary benefits of learning logic: 1. SELF DEFENSE: If you are a young person, targets are all over you; many different interests are trying to influence your values and actions. 2. PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT Effective communication, logical organization of thoughts and freedom from contradictions.
