[responsivevoice_button buttontext=”Play”]

Argumentation is commonly associated with debate and its using does not require being adversarial. When trying to persuade, your first thought might be to avoid it.

The kind of argument being discussed here is not bickering or being obnoxious or even debate, therefore do not think of it as attacking the opposing point of view. In its simplest form, it is putting forth reasons for or against a certain point of view.

Argumentation can involve deductive reasoning, presentation and elaboration. It starts with a proposition, followed by an expression of a point of view on a subject and then supporting an evidence.

[responsivevoice_button buttontext=”Play”]

There are several important things to be considered, when one wants to get rich. One of the most important, is the fact that during your educational life, you should have to consider taking a solid course in the history of education.

Why would this be important, you might ask? Because a solid understanding of the roots of institutional education enables you to realize that most of the education puts you in debt, never teaching you how to build wealth!
