There is, to put it lightly, a tendency in our present moment to shut others down, argue loudly with straw men, and be deaf to information outside of our own echo chambers.
This course takes these problems head-on with the “principle of charity”, a critical thinking concept that not only allows us to understand others in their best possible light, but also to make our own arguments stronger as well. Finally, it also examines how the idea can be used in conflict resolution and to further organizations’ innovation.
What the principle of charity is
More openness to others
Using it to resolve conflicts and innovate
More powerful persuasion of others. Heightened innovation
