Day 190- For arguments sake

Daniel H. Cohen is skilled at arguing. In this short TED talk, he proposes a new method of arguing; one in which the parties don’t necessarily try to win.
The philosopher explains his theory by explaining how the purpose of arguing should be more about an exchange of ideas and hashing something out rather than fighting it out. The traditional model of argument, where two people fight out a battle to win, he maintains is a damaging one and misses out on the benefits of active disagreement. These include collaboration and learning.
