This fall, University of Kentucky WRD Professor Jenny Rice will be leading the course UKC 381: Argumentation - “Deliberation, Persuasion, and Bullshit in the Public Sphere." While the title of the course may seem provocative, the topic is serious. In the class, students can expect to examine the tactics and strategies used to argue key issues in the public sphere and what the legacy of those arguments have left us with today.
In this podcast, Professor Rice discusses the role of argumentation in our lives daily as well as what philosopher Harry Frankfurt infamously labeled “bullshit" and its impact on conversations both local and national.
