In the Become an Argument Ninja podcast I’m trying to develop a new, innovative training program for critical thinking. I’m using the podcast as a platform for working out the foundations of this program.
With this program I’m trying to integrate several distinct disciplinary perspectives on argumentation and persuasion — logic, rhetoric, and psychology. I also use the metaphor of martial arts training, and draw lessons from the way martial arts programs teach complex skills.
The podcast has its own website URL: http://argumentninja.com
At this url you can see show notes for each episode, but I'm going to collect the episodes as lectures on this course page as well, including full transcripts of each episode, so you can leave comments here or on the Argument Ninja site.
