Product Description


This is the Teaching Company course number 4294 which has 4 DVDs and the course guide book. Reasoning, tested by doubt, is argumentation. We do it, hear it, and judge it every day. We do it in our own minds, and we do it with others. What is effective reasoning? And how can it be done persuasively? These questions have been asked for thousands of years-yet some of the best thinking on reasoning and argumentation is very new and represents a break from the past. At the Center of a Well-Educated Mind This is equally a course in argument and in reasoning. This course teaches how to reason. It teaches how to persuade others that what you think is right. And it teaches how to judge and answer the arguments of others-and how they will judge yours. Your guide to these issues is Professor David Zarefsky, the Owen L. Coon Professor of Argumentation and Debate and Professor of Communication at Northwestern University. Course Lecture Titles 1. Introducing Argumentation and Rhetoric 2.
