Better Angels Debate

A Better Angels Debate is a different kind of debate in which a group of people think together, listen carefully to one another, and allow themselves to be touched and perhaps changed by each other’s ideas. When done well, everyone walks out a little closer to the truth, more aware of the validity in opposing views, and with tighter community relationships. Debates encourage the passionate and energetic expression of ideas; allow for the expression of nuance and ambiguity; allow people to admit that they are not really sure which side they support when that’s the case.
