Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Giving, Getting, or Being the Inside Scoop

« Google Draws Content and Sharing Together | Main | The True Story of Paul Revere »


I'm not sure it's easier,

Binary or logocentric reasoning has been a feature of western conversation since Plato. In that regard its not a new feature of the human condition. But still sad.

Agree there are much more important things to do than legitimize bad ideas by arguing with them.

But the work of ideas is not painless. In my view, it is work that should be ligitimised as well as listening without judgement. It too is sad we are so quick to judge. Can we tell great art when there are only a few strokes on the canvass?

And yet, it can be just as easy - if not easier - to ignore it! We have more important things to do!

Yes, the opposite is seldom the solution. Its just easier to argue.
