In this short treatise, German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer tells us that if all human beings cared about was the truth, then we'd never find ourselves in an argument. The fact is, most of us have found ourselves in the position of defending something we know to be false, yet pride goads us to continue arguing our point so as not to be proven wrong in the eyes of others. So, setting aside pesky inconveniences like the truth, Schopenhauer lists off 38 dirty tricks we all can use to get one over on someone in a fight, even when we’re dead wrong. Despite the sarcastic tone, Schopenhauer’s book nevertheless doubles as a practical, somewhat Machiavellian field book on the art of bloodlessly dominating other people in an argument. Schopenhauer offers these observations up without moral judgement, so use these tips at your own peril! Enjoy this free 3-hour audio book from Librivox read by Carl Manchester.
