Interesting article on the art of persuading by John Dickson.  This has connections for me, concerning my incapacity to persuade, which was particularly apparent during 1968-1972.

It also has links to recent contributions to ‘popular misconceptions’ .. an aspect of Mezirow’s ‘Distorted Assumptions and Toulmin’s Fallacies .. and my collection and analytical tool of Faulty thinking.

Other recent contributors to my growing file are Ross Gittins’ commentary on David Myers and Dave Snowden
