Criticize with Kindness

How to Criticize with Kindness Is a summary of philosopher Daniel Dennett’s book which includes the four steps to arguing intelligently.

They are:

  1. Re-express your target’s position so that your target says, “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way”.
  2. List where you agree
  3. Mention anything you have learned from your target
  4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.
