Author: Stefan Molyneux
Title: The Art of the Argument
Genre: Philosophy; History
Rate: 2/5 | Goodreads
Finished likely the most unpleasant book I’ve read this year, “The Art of the Argument” by Stefan Molyneux, expecting tips on argument formulating or something. Instead got this.
About the Book: Author provides a very skewed idea of arguments, and why are they lacking, arguing himself with if not outright, then borderline racist, sexist, classist, and otherwise horribly biased personal opinions.
My Opinion: This book pretends to be about arguments, discourse, and letting the opponent speak, but only one side at all times is portrayed as the faulty ideology. It’s biased, unpleasant to read, and at best will teach you about what lack of neutrality looks like.
