SUBJECT: HOW TO CONVERT A BELIEVER – STREET EPISTEMOLOGY
I met Anthony Magnabosco, at the recent 2018 American Atheists convention in Oklahoma City, where he was a speaker. His presentation was one of the most important and interesting.
Magnabosco is a worldwide promoter and practitioner of Street Epistemology , which is a conversational method for respectfully challenging claims by asking probing questions to uncover the reliability of one’s belief formation process.
We will be watching a Magabosco video (https://www.youtube.com/
Throughout the video; he explains and analyzes his strategy.
SUBJECT: What is Street Epistemology?
Epistemology from Greek ἐπιστήμη, epistēmē, meaning ‘knowledge’, and λόγος, logos, meaning ‘logical discourse’) is the branch of philosophy concerned with the theory of knowledge.
Epistemology addresses such questions as “What makes justified beliefs justified?”, “What does it mean to say that we know something?” and fundamentally “How do we know that we know?”
Street Epistemology is the process of identifying, understanding, and challenging belief claims by asking questions.
Street Epistemology is dialectically-based, grounded in the Socratic method, and enhanced by recent evidence-based advances from a wide spectrum of disciplines, such as motivational interviewing, applied philosophy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
