how to think logically
How can one develop the skill of crafting a persuasive argument?
Some people have a talent for this- fellow law students who went on to become barristers relished the opportunities to moot and argue. But it must be possible to develop this if you set your mind to it.
I think it’d help in writing essays if I was able to think more “eloquently”. I can gather material, do bullet points and a skeleton of the essay without too much pain… and then endure agonies to move from that to a coherent full-blown essay.
I don’t think it’s just being a perfectionist (though that is part of it!).
But I think if I had learnt to argue better, following through thoughts logically (I do tend to go off at a tangent when I’m talking!) that’d help.
Are there books? Exercises? How about the Mind Gym book- there might be something in that??
