Argument 101

“How to Argue with Just About Anyone, Just About Anytime” 

This half-day workshop introduces some of the best, most relevant classical schools of thought to restore civility and bolster critical thinking.

Entertaining, accessible instruction and practice will build empathy, character, and community. Humorously employing the wisdom of Aristotle and others, with a pleasant dollop of Latin and Greek vocabulary, this course recognizes and celebrates the usefulness and applicability of logic and rhetoric in solving the contentiousness we encounter.

This class will be held Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
