Lecture to praise better arguments

Arguing can serve many purposes, and the biggest obstacles to arguing well may be the cross-purposes of the arguers, argues philosophy professor Catherine Hundleby.

She will discuss her position in a free public presentation Friday, Feb. 15, at 3 p.m. in room 1163, Chrysler Hall North.

“Argumentation can improve by attention to the purposes of arguers,” says Dr. Hundleby, co-ordinator of the doctoral program in argumentation studies and a fellow of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric.

Her lecture, entitled “We should be able to argue well,” is a dry run of a TEDx talk she will deliver Sunday, Feb. 17, in the Centre for Engineering Innovation.

Other presenters that day include psychology professor Antonio Pascual-Leone; nursing student Chantal Kayumba; Ziad Kobti, director of the School of Computer Science; Charu Chandrasekara, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Alternatives to Animal Methods; Robert Franz, music director of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra; and Assumption College High School business teacher Jeremy Bracken.
