Do you have a friend, family member, or neighbor whose views you just cannot stand? And you know, at the core of your heart, that they are just wrong? If so, this episode is for you. 

Today’s blog, written by Musa al-Gharbi, the Paul F. Lazarsfeld Fellow in Sociology at Columbia University, is about persuasion, but also about humility, and owning up to the fact that most of the time, we know less than we are willing to acknowledge. The piece is called, Three Strategies for Navigating Moral Disagreements and is narrated by Jonathan Todd Ross.

To engage deeper with Musa’s ideas, check out our related posts Both Sides Now: From Debate to Dialogue by Deb Mashek and Judith Shapiro, Don’t Dismiss Debate by Meg Mott, and 10 steps professors can take this semester to promote open inquiry and constructive disagreement in their classrooms by Deb Mashek.
