Argument.2020: Argument Mapping for X-Ray Vision

July 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

If you have ever disagreed with someone and, when they tried to explain their views, thought, “That doesn’t make any sense!”, you’ll love this seminar. If you’ve ever struggled to express your ideas so that others can understand your point, you’ll love this seminar. If you dig puzzles and logic problems, you’ll love this seminar. Argument mapping provides us with a type of x-ray vision that exposes arguments’ hidden structures. Once you learn to “see” arguments this way, you become much more facile at building sound arguments – and at identifying holes in others’ arguments. We will utilize tools and materials created by ThinkerAnalytix, an educational non-profit that works in partnership with classroom teachers and Harvard’s Department of Philosophy.
