A deeply enlightening book on how to be persuasive from an inspiring philosopher who teaches one of the most popular open online courses
Our personal and political worlds are rife with arguments and disagreements, some of them petty and vitriolic. The inability to compromise and understand the other side is widespread today. What can we do to change this? In Think Again philosopher Walter Sinnott-Armstrong draws on a long tradition of logic to show why we should stop focusing on winning arguments and instead argue in a more constructive way.
Walter Sinnott-Armstrong is the Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy and the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University. His class, Think Again: How to Reason and Argue, is one of the most popular courses available online via the global platform Coursera. His books include Morality Without God? and Moral Skepticisms.
