Appeals to Groups

Another video about groups! The timing of it coming out just after the previous one is just a coincidence. However, the approach in this one is a bit different, it being made as part of the ‘Mistakes we make in thinking’ series. The intended audience is wider, so it’s not framed in terms of Middle Way Philosophy but in terms of avoiding cognitive errors, drawing on psychology and critical thinking.

About Robert M Ellis

Robert M Ellis is the founder and chair of the Middle Way Society, and author of a number of books on Middle Way Philosophy, including the introductory 'Migglism' and the more in-depth 'Middle Way Philosophy' series. He has a Christian background, and about 20 years' past experience of practising Buddhism, but it was his Ph.D. studies in Philosophy that set him on the track of developing a systematic account of the Middle Way beyond any specific tradition. He has earned his living mainly by teaching, and more recently by online tutoring.

One thought on “Appeals to Groups

  1. Very professional talk, clearly delivered and nicely illustrated throughout. Threw up lots of helpful ideas about my own relationship to the groups to which I belong: how I can derive more benefit from them, contribute more effectively, and help grow their usefulness on the broader canvas of human affairs.

    I think the circle of strategies (and their interrelationship with each other) is particularly helpful, and a great starting point for any new group that is thinking of forming up.
