內容簡介

內心堅信有些人,絕對不可能與他們溝通?!
36個實用技巧,把無望變可行,各種情境的對話交流都將因此受益!

  ★科學重量級學者《自私的基因》理查‧道金斯盛讚「…在書中我發現,自己竟然也犯了一個個列舉的錯誤。如果所有人都讀了這本書,世界將成為一個更美好的地方。」

  觀點衝突對立的當代,在政治、公眾議題種種領域…人與人的相處經常成為,只要遇上與對方立場相左的人,根本懶惰於與對方對話。因為它們往往不通向任何結論與共識,只獲得爭執與一肚子氣,時而還傷了感情。所以不如,直接省略談這些,為彼此省一點力氣吧!但是,放棄真的能夠改變什麼嗎?暫時撇開那些讓人們變得激動尖銳的對立,關於溝通本身,有什麼重要的原則我們可以掌握?

  兩位作者在本書提供了36個技巧,讓我們認識對話與交換意見的根本原則,並以真實的對談作為案例,展現如何找到彼此的共通之處、與彼此相同的目標。例如:將「聆聽與相信」當作溝通的原則,原來採取「聆聽、理解,但同時保持懷疑」會是更有效的策略!

  透過清楚直白,又實用的溝通方法,指引你如何讓各種情境的溝通都可以順利進行:不論是一同討論生活、人事、工作,獲得對日常世界更多的理解與智慧,增進我們日常的溝通;又或是,在立場鮮明而經常火藥味濃烈的主題上,氣候變遷、宗教信仰、性別平權、種族、移民,讓這些分歧裡仍然可以有討論、理解的空間。這本實用指引──什麼是該做或應該避免,甚至該直接退出對話──讓我們一起找回彼此連結的可能,成功地進行有效而有建設性的對話,將不可能變為可能。(文/博客來編譯)

  "This is a self-help book on how to argue effectively, conciliate, and gently persuade. The authors admit to getting it wrong in their own past conversations. One by one, I recognize the same mistakes in me. The world would be a better place if everyone read this book." -- Richard Dawkins, author of Science in the Soul and Outgrowing God

  In our current political climate, it seems impossible to have a reasonable conversation with anyone who has a different opinion. Whether you're online, in a classroom, an office, a town hall -- or just hoping to get through a family dinner with a stubborn relative -- dialogue shuts down when perspectives clash. Heated debates often lead to insults and shaming, blocking any possibility of productive discourse. Everyone seems to be on a hair trigger.

  In How to Have Impossible Conversations, Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay guide you through the straightforward, practical, conversational techniques necessary for every successful conversation -- whether the issue is climate change, religious faith, gender identity, race, poverty, immigration, or gun control. Boghossian and Lindsay teach the subtle art of instilling doubts and opening minds. They cover everything from learning the fundamentals for good conversations to achieving expert-level techniques to deal with hardliners and extremists. This book is the manual everyone needs to foster a climate of civility, connection, and empathy.

Review

  "This is a self-help book on how to argue effectively, conciliate, gently persuade. The authors admit to getting it wrong in their own past conversations. One by one, I recognize the same mistakes in me. The world would be a better place if everyone read this book."―Richard Dawkins, author of Science in the Soul and Outgrowing God

  "In a Free Republic there would be no 'impossible conversations', which begs the question: are we truly free anymore? After reading, listening and conversing with Peter and James, I am convinced that they are the Galileo's, I. Kant and even William Tynsdale of our time."―Glenn Beck

  "I thought I knew all I needed to know about conversations and arguments. I was wrong. I just knew a lot about debates and rows. In their insightful and highly readable new book, Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay offer all kinds of ingenious pathways to constructive dialogue. At a time when public discourse has degenerated into mud-slinging and when campuses favour every kind of diversity except viewpoint diversity, this is an invaluable contribution. I guarantee that reading it will make you more -- much more -- persuasive."―Niall Ferguson, Milbank Family Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution, Stanford

  "In these polarized times, people live inside social media echo chambers of their own extremism, growing ever more self-righteous. This smart, scientifically grounded book, teeming with social and emotional wisdom, teaches how to break that isolation and effectively converse with someone with very different opinions. It will make you more adept at challenging, even changing, someone's beliefs, biases and sacred values. And it might even pave the way for making some of those changes yourself."―Robert Sapolsky, John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Professor of Neurology and of Neurosurgery, Stanford University

  "Drs. Boghossian and Lindsay offer critical advice regarding how to talk about contentious issues in today's political climate. How to Have Impossible Conversations is a necessary guide to navigating disagreements -- and building bridges -- using approaches backed by evidence and science."―Debra W. Soh, Ph.D., science columnist and political commentator

  "This fascinating book provides not only useful instruction on how to talk with someone who thinks differently, it also offers a powerful method of questioning and reducing confidence in unsubstantiated beliefs to help people think about what is true."―Helen Pluckrose, Editor, Areo Magazine

  "In the course of my work over the past quarter century I have been having impossible conversations with Holocaust deniers, creationists, anti-vaccination advocates, 9/11 Truthers, chemtrail conspiracy theorists, believers in astrology and ESP, proponents of alternative medicine, religious fundamentalists of many faiths, and dozens more people with whom I disagree vehemently. I've gotten pretty good at it but I had no idea what I was doing until I read How to Have Impossible Conversations, a sterling compendium of the most effective techniques of communication. I wish I'd had this important book at the start of my career as I would have saved myself many a fruitless dialogue. This book is the start of healing our contentious and divided age."―Michael Shermer, Publisher Skeptic magazine, Presidential Fellow Chapman University, author of Why People Believe Weird Things, The Moral Arc, and Heavens on Earth, and for 18 years a monthly columnist for Scientific American

  "We live in a time when discussing controversial issues, even with good friends, is becoming almost impossible. Peter and James have written an indispensable roadmap to prevent us from heading off the cliff."―Dave Rubin, The Rubin Report

  "We have arrived at an impasse. It is everywhere, and feels permanent. As algorithms steer our attention, we are each locked within a warren of echo chambers. Each day, this digital water we swim in causes a deepening entrenchment of our beliefs, and a growing willingness to caricature our opponents. When forced into contact with the other, we are repelled, indignant. How could anyone be so stupid? And we are shocked to discover the one thing that unites us with them is that they feel exactly the same way in return! It is not hard to spot the danger in this dynamic. It undermines the most basic logic of democracy, and threatens to derange the west, if not the world. But Boghossian and Lindsay have drawn up a plan to bridge the divide. They have bottled an antidote: A how to guide for talking to the enemy. Each drawing on decades of experience having impossible conversations, the authors have written what may be the ultimate instruction manual for crossing enemy lines and living to tell the tale. And not a moment too soon."―Bret Weinstein, PhD

  "There are two ways to participate in civil conversations in our hyper-politicized age -- build a time machine, or read this book."―Marc Andreessen, General Partner, Andreessen Horowitz
