Philosophy : How to have better arguments View details

Conflict and disagreement are seen by some as undesirable, while others (appear to) provoke them (on social media for example). Consensus and social harmony are seen by some as essential for a good life, while for others they are 'fake' because they deny the reality of social conflicts. Between those extremes, the course examines features of a helpful attitude to conflict - for example assuming that the other person/side have reasons for their views; that it can be harder for some to be heard; that 'listening to' does not have to mean 'agreeing with'. It questions the obligation to 'tolerate the intolerant'; provides some useful tools from argumentation theory to enable participants to think and present their ideas with greater clarity; and considers examples to distinguish between apparent and real conflicts. Where conflicts are real, it attempts to understand the source of the conflict - for example, incompatible fundamental values or interests.
