Program Description:

Classical logic is built upon premises that are presumed to be true, but what exactly is “true” and how does it differ from fact?  A recent Pew Survey revealed that 64% of knowledgeable, savvy Americans could not distinguish properly between five factual statements and five opinion statements; the unknowledgeable, unsavvy Americans fared far worse.  In this fascinating program, Part 2 of Logic, Argumentation, Persuasion, we’ll examine the differences between facts, inferences, beliefs, opinions, and norms.  We’ll use this information to help you construct more convincing, logical arguments and enhance your credibility in litigation and transactional practice, as well as in casual conversations.  We’ll also consider:

  • How “social facts” influence individual behavior;
  • How “norms” differ from “values”;
  • Whether “facts” are always reliable evidence; and
  • How data differs from information
