Dr. Kevin deLaplante is the creator of The Critical Thinker Academy, Argument Ninja Dojo, and Argument Ninja Podcast, dedicated to improving people’s critical thinking, communication, and persuasion skills. As a longtime professor of critical thinking, ethics, logic, scientific reasoning, among other things, he had a hunger to spread these skills outside of the classroom. With upwards of 50k students served through online courses, over 40k youtube subscribers, and even a video with over a million views, it’s clear that this move was fruitful. In this episode, we’ll get you thinking psychologically & philosophically about the human realities that lie at the core of persuasion and influence.
