Talking About What Matters, With Civility


We're having some very serious conversations right now, whether it's asking others to wear masks and socially distance, or to discuss this country's issues with racism.

But how can we express our strong opinions and not have our conversation turn into a lecture, or a shouting match? In their book Grandstanding: The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk, social philosophers Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke outline ways we can avoid, yes, grandstanding, when talking about the things that matter to us most.

We promise the discussion involves no raising of voices or belittling of positions.
