Generous Thinking: Argumentation and Collaboration
The result is too often a mode of argument in which the ideas of our predecessors, our colleagues and even our primary sources are treated as mere fodder for disagreement. What might we build collectively - as a field; as a profession - if we understood argumentation as a process of thinking with rather than against others’ arguments?
This talk explores the challenges and the potential for modeling a form of discourse sorely lacking in the contemporary public sphere.
