Boghossian on Disagreeing Better

Peter Boghossian (Portland State) has posted three short videos in the New York Times on disagreeing better. He is co-author of How to Have Impossible Conversations, which I am going to check out now. I liked these videos because they provide examples the kinds of micro-moves that are so important for navigating difficult conversations today. They don’t necessarily resolve the dispute, but they help people keep talking, which is so important in our current fearful disputing landscape.

One thought on “Boghossian on Disagreeing Better”

  1. These three short videos — about a minute each — have very good suggestions for dealing with disputes generally, not just disputes over politics. They’re worth a look and suggesting to students.
