The public discussion is at times polarized and the algorithms point us toward people that are more or less just like us. The effect of this is that we have less practice conversating with those who think, talk, and behave differently from us. At the same time, we are facing great challenges that we are supposed to solve together.
Philosopher Øyvind Kvalnes has written Philosophical First Aid Kit as a helper, so that we are better equipped to cooperate when it comes to solving great issues together. It gives us inspiration to start conversations across barriers and get to know strangers and their perspective. The content of this book can help loosening up in the sharp fronts and conflict between people, so that small and great cooperation miracles can happen.
