How can math­e­mat­ics help us have bet­ter argu­ments? This week we spend the hour with The Art of Log­ic in an Illog­i­cal World” author, math­e­mati­cian Euge­nia Cheng, as she makes her case that the log­ic of math­e­mat­ics can com­bine with emo­tion­al res­o­nance to allow us to have bet­ter debates and argu­ments. Along the way we learn a lot about rig­or­ous log­ic using argu­ments you’re prob­a­bly hav­ing every day, while also learn­ing a lot about our own under­ly­ing beliefs and assumptions.
