Given my interest in how we form and how we might change our beliefs through conversation I have been excited to discover the work of Anthony Magnabosco and Street Epistemology.
Street Epistemology is a conversational tool that helps people reflect on the quality of their reasons and the reliability of their methods used to derive their confidence level in their deeply-held beliefs.

Watch the videos here (especially the tutorial) to see how Anthony gently, thoughtfully and respectfully questions people about their beliefs with a view not to changing them but to help reflect on the evidence that underpins them.

He has drawn his method from the work of Peter Boghossian. You will find more information about the techniques he uses in Peter's book on Impossible Conversations.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
