'The Art of the Argument' shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, 'The Art of the Argument' smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.Civilization is defined by our willingness and ability to use words instead of fists - in the absence of reason, violence rules. 'The Art of the Argument' gives you the intellectual ammunition - in one concentrated, entertaining and powerful package - to engage in truly productive, civilization-saving debates. Armed with this book, you will be empowered to speak truth to power, illuminate ignorance, shatter delusions and expose the dangerous sophists within your own life, and around the world.… (més)

The author makes an excellent case for critical thinking and the power of a proper argument. Unfortunately, he chooses to colour this with his contentious right wing beliefs, which he implies are the natural conclusion of logical thinking. He justifies this will cherry picked evidence. Ironically, he rages against 'sophists' for using the same techniques. I think he would have been more successful in his goal had he avoided using these subjects as examples. ( )

Ugh. I liked some of Stefan's radio-style interviews (but dislike a lot of his psychology/therapist stuff). I figured I'd listen to this on a plane so I could review it. Maybe 2.5 stars, but the audio version is read by Stefan and is paced really badly (he speaks each word quickly but then has lengthy pauses between each word) so 2/5 is generous.

It starts with a basic primer on logic. Not the best presentation, but nothing factually incorrect. Then a subtle segue into using the logical arguments on abstract social issues (libertarian arguments re: charity), and then more pointed criticism of current events and politics. There's a pretense that the political criticism is just as factual and logically derived as the earlier abstract logical statements, but..no. Ironic for a book which spends 5-10% criticizing sophistry vs. logical argument.

What is with it with people and "argument" or "argumentation" as the basis for their philosophy? I love Hans-Hermann Hoppe, but his "Argumentation Ethics" is horrible. I can't tell if this was inspired by that, or just generally horrible on its own, but it accomplished that task. ( )
