We humans rarely agree. We argue and debate, and nothing ever seems to be resolved. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could cut through the clutter and create consensus for your ideas and proposals? Of course it would. But to get there, you have to stop arguing and start asking questions. In this audiobook, author and humanist Jennifer Hancock discusses recent research on how ideas are formed and changed to help you understand why and how to yield to your opponent. You'll learn how to turn the conversation around using Socratic questioning techniques to frame the underlying moral debate to your advantage. This is the companion to the online course, “How to Win Arguments Without Arguing: Socratic Jujitsu”, created by Jennifer Hancock for Humanist Learning Systems. This audiobook contains the edited transcripts of the online lessons compiled for easy home reference. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Hancock.

My soul, rest thou only in God, for my hope is from him. (Psalm 62:5)The discussions in this little book are not supposed to be arguments. It was not my aim to convince an opponent but to assist a friend. How I have personally threaded the labyrinth of life thus far may be of helpful interest to some other soul who is in a maze. I hope that this book will assist some true heart to say “he fought his doubts and gather’d strength”. Let no man’s heart fail him, for, the prevalent skepticism of today are but “specters of the mind”. Face them, and they fly.About the author: Charles Haddon (C. H.) Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British baptist preacher. He started preaching at age 17 and quickly became famous. He is still known as the “prince of preachers” and frequently had more than 10,000 people present to hear him preach at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. His sermons were printed in newspapers, translated into many languages, and published in many books. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saethon Williams.

I know that I am intelligent because I know that I know nothing. - Socrates Ancient Greece has laid way for some of the most influential people, systems and stories of our civilization. It is hard to believe on one hand because technology-wise the Greeks were very primitive, yet on the other hand they were essentially on of the earliest roots of Western civilization. Even today logic and argument are taught as one of the most effective skills to possess. Many people can say something is logical or illogical without really understanding the principle behind it but this is an age-old problem and one that three mastered in Ancient Greece. The system of argument was really formalized in Ancient Greek culture. People would gather around to see arguments then, like we would to see a sporting event today. The difference between sports is that you weren't playing for touchdowns but instead playing to cement philosophical systems. The only way to win was to break an argument down logically and prove your opponent wrong. This was such a popular event that some of their names are even remembered now. When we consider the people of Ancient Greece though, there are four that come to mind, who are Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Alexander (the Great). Of the four of them, perhaps the most is known of Aristotle and Alexander, but the interesting thing is the connection that these four have as teacher and pupil. If you connect the relationships beginning with Alexander you will see that he was Aristotle's student, who attended Plato's school and Plato was one of the major students of Socrates. 1.
