It doesn’t seem to me possible to think and listen at the same time. When the teacher is speaking, I cannot listen and at the same time think about the lesson. Either I will focus on interpreting what the teacher says, or I’ll think about the lesson, but to do both is impossible. Let’s illustrate this
If twenty five divisions are not enough, then the general will not win the battle. Either three wings of tactical air support will be provided or the general will not win the battle. Also, it is not the case that twenty five divisions are enough, and that three wings of tactical air support will be provided. Therefore, twenty five divisions are not enough.
From P. Suppes Introduction to logic(1957)
I don’t think if a teacher presents this argument, and continues, that we’ll be able to follow without stopping.
Is it possible? If so, how efficient is that?
