Primers and Pastimes
Perhaps one day we’ll have more, but the only primer we presently have available is a logic primer:
If you’re wondering how to tell good arguments from bad ones—or if, like Sokrates, you’d first like to know what the heck an argument even is—you’ve come to the right place. “Arguments and Their Evaluation” will answer both those questions, the Sokratic one first.
