162. How To Engage In Discussions – Conversation The WGN Podcast

I had the chance to talk to the guys at the Winner Gets Nothing Podcast about a range of topics. In this episode, we discussed, politics, religion, and much more. One of the main things we talked about is how to engage in discussions. I think this is a huge part of what’s hurting our society today.

We dove into a range of different topics. But, I think the whole time we were flowing on a lot of different topics. Hopefully, this episode serves as a guide for those of you who want to have good, productive conversations.

Dante Alighieri

The guys at the WGN Podcast are not sitting idly by, but are engaging in the conversation. And, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to talk to them. If you’re interested in politics, religion, libertarianism, conspiracies and more, you’ll like this podcast for sure.

How To Engage in Discussions

First, keep a level head. Don’t get angry or upset if people disagree. In the moment you can simply agree to disagree and think about things and think about it later.

Secondly, you should find common ground and seek to understand the other person. Instead of looking to win the argument or undermine the other person’s argument, look for ways to be productive. Finding common ground and building on that can be great. And, learning a new perspective can be really helpful as well.

Lastly, I recommend you talk about things you and the other person are knowledgeable on and passionate about. If you can do that, you have a way to move forward on the conversation and can get into the flow of it. I think we had that flow going, which is why I wanted to share this conversation with you.

174. Reviving Traditional Art Conversation of Our Generation

I recently sat down with Amy Mastrine, an artist who works in traditional mediums, to talk about the state of art. Finding a way to create new iterations of traditional art is something that would go a long way for our culture. Because I enjoyed this conversation, I wanted to revisit some of the great insights to discuss them more. Amy offered a lot of interesting ideas, so I thought it would be good to elaborate and offer my thoughts. Also, I've thought about doing this for some of my other interviews, so if you enjoy this, let me know! And, if there's anyone I should interview, let me know here. "Culture is the arts elevated to a set of beliefs." -Thomas Wolfe The Beauty of Traditional Art Digital art lacks soul in some way. There are a lot of great things happening in digital art. For instance, video games are creating incredible scenes. Despite the beauty one can create with digital art, there is something irreplaceable about traditional art. https://youtu.be/hhDScD6qTPE Beauty is Objective Beauty is an objective reality. Although many people will argue it is subjective, it is an objective reality. However, people who argue for the subjectivity of beauty touch on something true. Because beauty is an abstraction, it does require a subject to observe it. https://youtu.be/TVPVgHa1Dx8 The highest form of art What is the highest form of art? Is it painting, sculpting, or stained glass? In this interview, Amy called architecture the highest form of art, and I agree. Although architecture isn't often thought of as art, I would say it is. In my opinion, art is creating beauty in an expressive way. Despite not being expressive in the same way, architecture does have this relationship to people because it is how we live. "Eventually, my eyes were opened, and I really understood nature. I learned to love at the same time." -Claude Monet — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
