Our lives are so often filled with superficial talk, from office chit chat to commentaries on last night's television. How can we have conversations that inspire us to think in new ways, that stimulate our curiosity and that prompt us to say things we've never said before? How should we talk to our lovers? How can we deal with difficult conversations both at work and around the family dinner table?
Join us for a class about the art of conversation. We'll be exploring its history, drawing lessons from top talkers like Doctor Johnson and Woody Allen. We'll investigate the psychology and philosophy of conversation – what works and what doesn't – as well as the assumptions we make about other people that stifle mutual understanding. And of course we'll put the ideas we explore into practice. Come along and discover how to make the leap from mere idle banter to enriching and adventurous conversation.
