We spent a very enjoyable afternoon a week or so ago with a group of McGill University students who were interested in experiencing a wine women and philosophy salon designed especially for them. Pictured here with us are Sarah, Chloe and Isabella, who took time out from finals week to explore 'The Art of Conversation' and with it, the importance of asking good questions.
It was clear from the get-go that we all shared a love of lively and stimulating verbal exchange, and the eloquence of these students as they elaborated the difference between talk that rewards and talk that just never seems to go anywhere was truly impressive. We also appreciated the fact that Sarah, who organized the afternoon, is the daughter of regular wwp member Kathy McKnight...It was fun to try out our pedagogical approach with the next generation!
