BOOK PRESENTS CONCRETE STEPS TO PEACEMAKING
Despite our best efforts, our attempts to resolve conflict sometimes fall short, and that feeling of being stuck at a dead end can cause us to give up and walk away. Yet we are social beings, and are instinctively drawn to working together, say Dr. Donald Scherer, a professor emeritus of philosophy, and Carolyn Jabs, journalist, author and BGSU alumna.
When cooperation fails, “What is the missing ingredient and what steps can we take to supply it?” Scherer asked.
In their new book, “Cooperative Wisdom: Bringing People Together When Things Fall Apart,” published by Green Wave Press, Scherer and Jabs explore this vexing question and posit five virtues that can help jumpstart efforts at solving problems together. For each virtue, they include three concrete practices to use.
