What's an impossible conversation?
According to Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay in their book How to Have Impossible Conversations, an impossible conversation is one that feels futile because it takes place between people who hold radically different ideas, beliefs, morals, politics, or worldviews.
Peter explains 10 of the principles, strategies, and techniques that can be used to engage in impossible conversations (taken from his book) in this video The Way Forward. I have indexed each principle for ease of access.
Helping people question their deepest beliefs, even changing them is not easy and I find Peter's work exciting. I'll be writing much more about it in my blook over the coming weeks.
A big thank you to David Creelman for bringing this book to my attention.
