    Argue With Me!

    george.cigar.jpgA rhetoric article by Figaro has just been nominated for  National Magazine Award!  (That’s the Oscars of magazines, except the people aren’t nearly as good-looking.)  The piece shows parents how to teach their kids to argue.  Figarists may be interested especially in the sidebar titled “Aristotle’s Guide to Dinner Table Conversation.”  You can find the story here.

     And while we’re bragging, Figaro has done 34 interviews for more than 400 radio stations.   He talks about figures of speech, among other rhetoric topics, on Radio West, an NPR regional affiliate.   Listen to the interview here

     This rhetoric stuff is going to be really big.  Cicero told us so.
