How to change minds

a SE Inspired comic

I’ve had varying levels of success changing other people’s minds with logical arguments, impassioned pleas and behavioural manipulation. Does that make me sound like a monster? Perhaps, but in my defence I’ve been using the same techniques on myself.

This is how we all attempt to convince ourselves and others of The Truth™. But it’s not the best way. This short comic is an introduction to a philosophical method of discussing ideas that changed the way I talk to people about beliefs, maybe it will do the same for you.

If you found this comic useful and want to support my work and provoke some interesting conversations about beliefs please consider buying one of my limited edition enamel pins. It’ll look neat on your lapel and give you the opportunity to use  fancy words in everyday conversations:

“Oh this, it’s just a badge that signifies my commitment to interrogating the epistemological basis of belief systems … what’s yours about? Oh, Snoopy. Cool.”

To have this comic read to you in the sweet voice of Anthony Magnabosco play the video below. Otherwise scroll on down and read it for yourself. You can let me know what you think on twitter and don’t forget to spread the word on social media, let's get some conversations started!

Oh, by the way, if you like this comic you’ll love this other one I made.

 
 

To find out more about how to talk about the tower I recommend this website which will introduce you to Street Epistemology (or SE as all the cool kids are calling it). If you want to connect to the SE community, you’ll find them all over the web on facebook, twitter and your podcast feeds, oh and out on the streets of course! And to see SE in action check out Anthony Magnabosco’s Youtube channel and get inspired.

Thanks for reading my comic, if you want to support my work you could buy yourself a ‘How to Change Minds’ enamel pin, follow me on twitter and/or browse my other comics. Or all three. Hey, why not do all three?
