Listen to Anthony Magnabosco Explain the Power of “Street Epistemology”

Regular readers are familiar with Anthony Magnabosco, a self-described “street epistemologist” who chats with strangers to get to the bottom of how they think. He doesn’t debate them. He just asks questions about how they’ve arrived at, say, their religious beliefs.

He recently sat down with Seth Andrews for a conversation about how he got interested in this method, and why he finds it so much more valuable than typical arguments with people who hold different views.

As he says in the video, perhaps the biggest impact he can have on religious people is showing them that doubt isn’t such a bad thing. He also reminds atheists that they may be more effective in changing minds by using this approach instead of something more aggressive and combative.
