3/12/07: Thank You for Arguing
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Author Jay Heinrichs says that Americans aren't argumentative ... but that they should be. It's not about fighting though, it's about rhetoric. The art of persuasion used to be at the core of education and according to Heinrichs, "the better we do it, the more civil our society is." Jay Heinrichs has a new book on the history and the strategies of rhetoric, and joins Doug to explain what orators from Cicero to Homer Simpson can teach us about skillful discourse.
