The Psychology of Persuasion (with Secular Pro-Life’s Monica Snyder)

MP3 Download | 1:33:06

Josh Brahm and Monica Snyder have an open conversation about biology, philosophy, and how they interact with persuasion in the abortion debate. Monica has a STEM background so she and Josh compare notes on how STEM professionals and philosophers feel about each other, and why many of them are arrogant.

They also discuss:

– How arrogance, confidence, and impostor syndrome often interact with each other;

– The pros and cons of using big words; – Whether biology vs. philosophy are more likely to change minds on abortion;

– “Should we prioritize our arguments more based on whether they are influential, emotionally compelling, logically sound, or other factors?”

– Steps anyone can take to become more rational.
