Antony Sammeroff and Interpersonal Communication

Antony Sammeroff and Interpersonal Communication

Antony Sammeroff and Interpersonal Communication | Show Notes

Summary

It’s very easy to think of libertarianism and the principle of self-ownership as being an extreme form of individualism. In fact, cynics of libertarian thought chide libertarians for being atomistic, selfish, egotistical, and the like. While any student of libertarian philosophy knows these accusations are baseless, other self-described libertarians may have difficulty relating ideas like self-ownership to relationships.

This is for any kind of relationship – whether platonic, romantic, or more indirect like with the state. Antony Sammeroff and Kerry Baldwin dialogue about the importance of good communication skills, why most of us don’t have them, what the consequences have been on a societal scale, and how we can start making changes for the good.
