Inhaltsangabe

The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

Civilization is defined by our willingness and ability to use words instead of fists - in the absence of reason, violence rules. The Art of the Argument gives you the intellectual ammunition - in one concentrated, entertaining and powerful package - to engage in truly productive, civilization-saving debates. Armed with this book, you will be empowered to speak truth to power, illuminate ignorance, shatter delusions, and expose the dangerous sophists within your own life, and around the world.

An Argument for The Argument

This book highlights the importance of real arguments for civilizations.
No argument, no civilization. I hope you spread the argument and become more aware of false arguments

Red Pill

Ich kann kaum in Worte fassen, wie sehr dieser Mann mich und die Art und Weise, wie ich die Dinge sehe und beurteile, beeinflusst hat. Dank ihm sehe ich die Verkommenheit dieser Zeit und ihr unglaubliches Potenzial. In diesem Buch hat er zusammengefasst, was er in Youtube in unzähligen Stunden erklärt und als Beispiel vormacht. Natürlich bekommt er von mir nur die besten Bewertungen, da dieses Buch nicht nur Argumentieren und Diskutieren lehrt, sondern wie man lebt.

Not about logic or argumentation at all

short version:
-) this is not a book about logic or crafting an argument but an incoherent rant pushing anarcho-capitalist/anti-socialist talking points in (poor) disguise. Think "one guy holding a stick saying 'I am a tree'" disguise
-) while I have no problem with arguing against socialism (or anything, really), this is
A) terribly lazily done and more importantly
B) pretends to be an "impartial" and "logical" book WHICH IT IS NOT
-) the book is one overlong rant without any red thread, meandering wildly around topics - did anyone bother to edit this?
-) I am no classically trained philosopher by any stretch of the imagination but his misrepresentation of other philosophers, lazy argumentation and complete absence of logical rigor are painfully obvious
-) *THE ARGUMENT* is brought up about 5 times a minute, never having been properly defined and meaning *whatever*, at various points in the book - example:

“The first thing to understand is that The Argument is everything. The Argument is civilization; The Argument is peace; The Argument is love; The Argument is truth and beauty; The Argument is, in fact, life itself.”


For all the reasons listed above this is just a terrible, terrible book.

I went into this with no expectations or prejudice one way or the other, having never heard of Molyneux in my life. About half an hour in (I listened to the audiobook) it started to sink in that while this presents itself as a book about logic and rational argumentation it is really anything but - the author rambles on, mostly without rhyme, reason or a red thread pushing his blatant anarcho-capitalist agenda in your face.
It is not suble. AT ALL!
It was read by the author and while this should not be a criterion his voice performance is INFURIATING beyond measure - overly smug, patronising in tone of voice and choice of vocabulary, incredibly repetitive and overall vomit-inducing. This should not bother me as much as it does, but if I have to listen to Molyneux sigh *the AAAHGUMENT* (as he does, about 16 times a minute) once more, I will be sorely tempted to give myself a DYI lobotomy with a screwdriver.

DO NOT read this if you have ever read any decent philosophy, EVER.

And by all means STAY AWAY FROM THE AUDIO VERSION unless you want to hear Molyneux' voice in your head for MONTHS whenever you see the words "the Argument" anywhere. It's like a revolting aftertaste that just will not go away.

Horribly devious drivel

Absolute mistake, would never recommend. Backwards misogynistic xenophobic chauvinist propaganda thinly disguised as sincere discourse.

More a critic of "the left" than anything elese

was difficult listening to this book. I expected real argumentation technics or you may say: tips and tricks. But this felt a lot more like a critic of "the left" than anything else. Moreover, some of the arguments were very poorly made like suggesting that (all) children of "single mothers" whatever was meant with this (from the tone of the reader and general comments one gets the sentiment or mental picture that this means promiscuous and irresponsible women) would be "better of" (again whatever this means, if I had to guess the author means economic or social consequences, and disregards any or all psychological consequences for children and mothers. But I guess the sentiment of the book is: they only have them selfs to blame for any negative effects so... though luck)   if they were given to adoption. I am open to such an Idea (giving all children of single mothers to adoption), but it is very casually presented as a proven better alternative as "the welfare state". So I guess I simply did not expect the argument to be just a political critic of "the left". I had the hope of getting some sort of skillset to be better at argumentation whatever the topic. This is far from what the book is.

a challenge and a reward

It was a challenge to resume playing the book in the past week. I was already gone through a better part of it and knew what mindset i will be in if i turn it on again. Fighter's mindset. It seems that you don't have to fight every day, what kind of life is that, peace is the way. And so if I woke up peaceful and happy I know this feeling would probably not remain once I resume playing this book.

And it's a good thing. Argument keeps you grounded and on the path. You might not feel the same naive accidental happiness, but happiness that is earned through struggle and defending the truth.

Now that I said that I have to keep my conscience in check.

This is a great book.

unfortunate pretentious piece of garbage

one should always try to listen to arguments of those you oppose. and if presented based on reason think about the validity of your own positions.

but the author can’t hide his disgust and complete lack of compassion as well as fails being objective in the first chapter.

he bashes single mothers and the welfare state with weird and incomplete reasoning and therefor - even if the topic sounded interesting it is unfortunately a pretentious piece of garbage!

very sad! (as his “president” of choice would say!)
