Using Ethics to Overcome Opposition
Why are people so stupid? Whether we’re talking about politics, security, justice or the economy, for every sensible opinion you have, there are thousands of people who passionately believe in the exact opposite – and worse, they’re completely convinced they’re right.
Using five raging social issues of our time, The Ideology Smackdown series offers you the chance to get to the bottom of this once and for all, employing professional ethics to understand your opponents, learn how to overcome their incorrect beliefs, and best of all, make sure you weren’t the incorrect one to start with. They say ‘you can’t argue with stupid’; this series will prove that ‘stupid’ never existed in the first place.
Gordon Young, lecturer in professional ethics at RMIT University and principal of Ethilogical Consulting will be leading these super interesting classes throughout the year.
All classes are $16 and are held at Embiggen Books in Melbourne CBD.
