How People Comprehend and Evaluate Argument - 5pm UAA Bookstore Today

This one is just too on-target with this blog's basic theme - how do we know what we know? -  for me to not post.  Free parking, free admission, And they usually have snacks at the bookstore talks as well.

UAA Prof Yasuhiro Ozuru will be talking about a subject that everyone seems to be an expert on and yet so few can get through to the people with whom they disagree.  

So what does this UAA Pscyhologist have to say?  Find out at 5pm today.  (If you can't make it, there's a link below for UAA podcasts.  I'm not sure when it will be up though.  But if you go, you'll be able to ask follow up questions too.

From the email I got: 

Yasuhiro Ozuru presents

'Argumentation: How People Comprehend and Evaluate Argument'

When:   Mon, March 2, 5pm – 7pm
Where:  UAA Campus Bookstore, 2905 Providence Drive, Anchorage, AK 99508map   (The map's not great - it's the big mirrored glass box next to the old sports center)

Description:   Yasuhiro Ozuru analyzes the relation between comprehension (understanding), validation and evaluation of argument content. People's confusion between argument based on factual evidence and an explanation about why things occur will be examined.

Yasuhiro Ozuru is an associate professor of psychology at UAA. He received his Ph.D. from New School University in 2003.

[I'm reposting this in hopes the feedburner kicks in this time.  Sorry to those who did get here already - not too many of you.]
