Teaching logic is one of Bethany Barnosky’s many specialties. Today, Bethany and I are going into the second half of our discussion on logic, reasoning, and wisdom, and it’s a fantastic conversation that you do not want to miss!
We talk about the problems of dogmatism, generalization and meanings of words, why it’s okay to listen and ask questions, and how parents and kids can enjoy learning critical thinking skills. Bethany also covers what concepts her students struggle to grasp most, how she incorporated critical thinking into her son’s life, and why logic is just the beginning of reasoning, not the end of it.
This interview is part two of this interview! I hope you guys enjoyed hearing this conversation. Tune in next week for an episode on the Special Pleading fallacy, which is also this month’s fallacy wallpaper!
