Aim of the course is to develop skills for successful participation in reasoning and discussive situations. The course creates a practical experience based on the theoretical knowledge of the prerequisites by simulating complex discussions, similar to Anglo-Saxon discussion courses. The course emphasizes methods of rational and persuasive reasoning, public speaking in front of a heterogeneous audience, development of rhetorical skills, and verbal and non-verbal abilities. A further aim of the course is to develop students' critical attitudes and their rational conflict management skills by processing a variety of discussion topics.
