    Philosophy:
    http://www.luc.edu/philosophy/philosophylinks/

    Key works of 7 philosophers:
    http://www.luc.edu/philosophy/basic_ethics_reader.shtml

    It seems to me, it should include Confessions by Augustine (probably considered more theology than philosophy, but it fits under both not just one). If Summa Theologica can be both, why not Confessions.

    I might add some political philosophy or applied ethics to make to round out these resources.

  4. Nathan Ketsdever / Jul 24 2013 8:42 pm

    Probably more appropriately just philosophy, but some phenemenological resources–need to track more of this down:

    Looks interesting/could be useful for design thinking:

    There is also a design thinking course on Coursea on innovation.

    See also the Stanford YouTube Channel

    Argument more broadly–fixing the logical fallacies:

    http://ojs.uwindsor.ca/ojs/leddy/index.php/informal_logic/article/view/3035/2419

    http://ojs.uwindsor.ca/ojs/leddy/index.php/informal_logic/article/view/2577

    (there are probably more articles on this point)

  8. Nathan Ketsdever / Jul 29 2013 6:09 pm

    More on logic & informatity, etc…
    http://ojs.uwindsor.ca/ojs/leddy/index.php/informal_logic/article/view/2572

    http://ojs.uwindsor.ca/ojs/leddy/index.php/informal_logic/article/view/2570

    The first one, in particular looks interesting. The second one seems radical in premise–to seemingly reject any distinction between two core types of argument.

    Overall the breakdown of their archives:

    Cool–sort of research oriented:

    Found some article on meta-cognition here.

    Philosophy:
    His critique of relativism:
    http://as.nyu.edu/object/paulboghossian.html

    His defense of relativism:
    http://www.stanford.edu/%7Ektaylor/relativism.pdf

    Although he’s not a full-scale relativist (he believes in democracy as a public policy/public value)

  22. compassioninpolitics / Nov 21 2013 4:27 pm

    More about writing/persuasion–mostly aimed toward HS or potentially college, but potentially an application beyond those bounds:

    LD Debate:
    http://webpages.charter.net/johnprager/LD_index.html

    Thought this was potentially thought provoking

  24. compassioninpolitics / Nov 29 2013 6:25 pm

    Could file this under communication, history, or critical thinking–units on history:

    But uniquely academic. Not sure about any ideological slant.

    Trivium and Logical Thinking–

    This is about 10 activities before 10:

    They also include a list of Christian logic texts.

  55. compassioninpolitics / Nov 29 2014 5:55 am

    This is one of the key lists from that Trivium website mentioned above:

    I’m not sure if I’m picking this primarily due to the inclusion of a number of key debate cites at the top of the article, but none-the-less interesting:

    This is a report on reading at universities. The book list starts on p.150, which I think is one of the most significant uses of the report:
