The Argument Clinic

I recently published a fun little pedagogical essay on using Monty Python’s “Argument Clinic” sketch to introduce students to arguments, in the philosophical sense. I first learned of this sketch in graduate school from Ben Rin. Ever since, I have deployed it in teaching introductory logic, but it would also be wonderful for any introductory philosophy course that has a unit on arguments and argumentation. If you teach philosophy, aspire to, or wonder what it would be like, watch the clip first and imagine how you would use it.
