Milt's File

A file of links relating to Extension 720 with Milt Rosenberg, a talk show on Chicago's WGN Radio.

Wednesday, October 27, 2004

Tonight on Extension 720: Samuel Johnson once said: “Sir, I have found you and argument; but I am not obliged to find you an understanding,” Though Johnson believed in argument without understanding, most people—when they disagree—want to reach a resolution. But how can you go about changing someone’s mind? Logic does not always serve to convince a teenager or someone on the other side of the political spectrum. Tonight, HOWARD GARDNER, professor of cognition and education at Harvard, will give a seminar on how to convince others and change their minds. He is the author of the new book Changing Minds: The Art and Science of Changing Our Own and Other People's Minds.
