The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know

This Study Group will be online

We will read and discuss “Think Again” by Adam Grant. He examines ways we could and should question our opinions and attempt to open other people's minds. Many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn.

As the book says, “our beliefs get brittle before our bones.”

You will learn how an international debate champion wins arguments and how the author has coaxed Yankee fans to root for the Red Sox. Adam Grant shows how to get people to begin questioning their ideas, but he freely admits it is often impossible to change minds.

Instructor Gerry Lapidus has conducted OLLI book discussions since 2005. The classes are informal and conversational. He leads the first week's discussion and requests volunteers to lead the remaining sessions while he serves as moderator. Please read the Prologue and Section 1 (p.1-32) for the first session.

This study group will meet on Mondays for six weeks beginning on November 1. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed prior to the first session.
