"This will be a loosely structured, participation-based workshop on having efficient and effective conversations between people who share broad motivations but disagree about concrete beliefs or plans. We will explore various topics, depending on the interest of participants. Concretely, we will be having conversations about things that people disagree on and care about, and talking about conversational tools for doing that well. For example, we might talk about and practice:
-tracking and aligning subgoal-supergoal structures (We both want to cause X, so let's team up);
-cruxing / double cruxing / tracking and comparing belief-implication structures (You think X because you think Y, I think not-X because not-Y and agree that if Y then X);
-making ""original seeing"" mode vs "consensus-generating" mode explicit (distinguishing cached thoughts and arguments from collaborative brainstorming)
