Undergrad Affiliate Conversation: Learning to ‘Steel Man’ an Argument

On Constructive Disagreement
July 14, 2021

On July 14th at 5pm Eastern, HxA Undergraduate Affiliate Jack Harris led this session for fellow students about logical fallacies that we tend to use and how to avoid them by using the Steel Man technique. This technique is more convincing and more equitable than a vast majority of typically-used argumentative techniques, allows people to refine and strengthen their arguments, and sets the stage for good-faith conversations.

Please note that this event was only available to HxA undergraduate student affiliates. To save a spot in this workshop, we asked that student affiliates complete the brief registration form linked below.
