É com imensa satisfação que divulgamos o seminário do Professor Dr. Brian Heslop, que faz parte da Coker University, de Hartsville, Carolina do Sul. O evento intitulado “Argument as Inquiry: An Invitational Approach to Vexed Conversation”, está marcado para o dia 24 de novembro de 2022 às 14h30, via Plataforma Zoom. Participe!

In an era of racial and gender discrimination, authoritarianism, and fake news, teaching students how to form sound, powerful arguments has never been greater. Yet students commonly associate argument with conflict and feel a heightened sensitivity around controversial topics. Thus, preparing and encouraging students to engage in arguments can prove challenging. Argument as inquiry is a form of argumentative engagement that fosters deliberation rather than confrontation. It is a collaborative process of exploring questions and working through problems together. It views argument as a set of questions rather than assertions about truth, framing discussion as an exploration of ideas that coordinate the co-construction of possible outcomes.
