Sunday Speaker: Roman Tarasov – Street Epistemology: How to Improve Your Conversations About Beliefs

Even when we are having discussions that are seemingly going nowhere, there is so much to learn and so much to give.


Roman Tarasov - Street Epistemology: How to Improve Your Conversations About Beliefs

Street Epistemology (SE) is a rapidly developing communication technique that allows us to have polite and productive discussions about anything, even the most triggering topics that people might disagree on. It combines ideas of the scientific method, modern psychological findings, and ancient Socratic questioning. Can we introduce a few tools into our daily interactions to make them deeper and more efficient? Can we empower each other with the possibility to change and adjust our beliefs, instead of trying to persuade each other with little to no effect? There is a strong case to answer 'yes' to both those questions, and we invite you to join the discussion about it.

Roman Tarasov is a math and physics high school teacher, critical thinking enthusiast and an active practitioner of SE. He is also a subject matter expert in the SE Course Development project, practice meetings host, and the manager of the Russian SE community.
