Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

Influence & Persuasion: How to get other people to agree with you

When? - Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Where? Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

What? A talk by Dr Peter Connolly

Peter Connolly will outline two broad strategies for persuading people to accept that what you claim is true. The first is persuasion by evidence-based philosophical argumentation and the second is persuasion by rhetorical argumentation. By the end of the talk, you should be able to make your own arguments more robust and be able to spot the flaws in the persuasive tactics of others.

Peter Connolly has taught Religious Studies, Ethics, Indian Religions, and Psychology of Religion at the University of Chichester and the Open University. His most recent book, Understanding Religious Experience, is due to be published in February 2019.
