EPISODE DESCRIPTION

"In almost every act of our lives whether in the sphere of politics or business in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind."
-Edward Bernays

Topic:
Richard Grove and Tony Myers from TragedyandHope.com join me for a general introduction to the series on logical fallacies. Our discussion covers how fallacies fit into the larger picture of critical thinking principles and the trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric).

We also talk about the recent Republican debates, identifying techniques used by certain candidates.

And the primary benefits of learning logic:

1. SELF DEFENSE:
If you are a young person, targets are all over you; many different interests are trying to influence your values and actions.

2. PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT
Effective communication, logical organization of thoughts and freedom from contradictions.
