Join my new Critical Thinking meetup group!


“My father used to say: Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument”
– Desmond Tutu

I started a Critical Thinking Meetup group. The mission of the group is introducing participants to logical arguments and logic-powered questioning techniques. See what the group is all about, and what members are saying about it, here.

Anyone can join. If you’re not a member of Meetup already, just go to, and sign up. It’s easy and free to join

Then go to the Columbus Critical Thinking Workshops page, and click “Join”.

If you’re already on Meetup, just sign in to Meetup, then visit our page and join the group.

  • The current featured program is run as a three-part series.
  • All sessions feature active learning AND group learning: attendees work in small groups, with other members, on learning exercises that the facilitator (me!) introduces, clarifies, and guides.
  • Sessions are held at local libraries.
  • RSVPs are managed through the group’s Meetup page.
  • It’s a great chance to meet new people who also value intellectual development!
