Modern education has abandoned us – by design. Many young people are now functionally illiterate and they have no clue how to spot an argument or construct one. The basic rules of organizing one’s mind and of reasoning with logic is beyond the capability of most grown up people today. DON’T BE ONE OF THEM! The discussion in this weeks podcast will fill you in on a few of the basics, but most importantly point you to an invaluable resource for your own self education.
Dr David Kelley has written a fantastic book that I consider to be one of the best if not THE best book on how to think. “The Art of Reasoning – An Introduction to Logic” is co-written with Debby Hutchins in its fifth edition. In the style of a textbook, this book takes you through all the basics of reasoning. It is laid out well in three sections and offers all sorts of exercises and practical applications of the things you will learn.
In the Interview David and I discuss many of the aspects of reasoning that are most important to the truth seeker today. Check it out on the podcast or you can watch the YouTube video below. Please remember to subscribe to my Bitchute Channel as well as my YouTube channel will not be tolerated for much longer.
The book is on Amazon here. Below are affiliate links. Also you can pick up a copy of David’s pamphlet “7 Habits of highly objective people” too. I am not generally in the business of pushing and selling books and products, but these are very recommended because of the MASSIVE boost to your thinking skills that these books will provide.
