He is the host of the Argument Ninja Podcast, where he has been exploring new approaches to critical thinking education and training that focus on the concept of “rational persuasion” and the value of thinking of critical thinking as a martial art.Previously he has taught philosophy and critical thinking at the university level for twenty years.From 2009-2013 he was the Chair of the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies at Iowa State University. In 2015 he left his tenured academic job to pursue a career as an independent online educator.

He is also the editor of Philosophy of Ecology (with Bryson Brown and Kent Peacock), volume 11 of the multi-volume Handbook of the Philosophy of Science.
讲座内容 The term "critical thinking" is a modern American invention, but the concept has a long history in western philosophical, scientific and political traditions. I give a brief overview of this history, and identify several problems with how critical thinking skills are conceptualized and taught in the North American education system. I argue that our growing understanding of the nature of human reasoning and the psychology of belief and decision-making demands a fundamentally new approach to critical thinking education. I frame this new approach using concepts borrowed from the philosophy and practice of martial arts.
