How to Know Everything


It can feel good to be the one with all the answers. When we don’t know something it can feel embarrassing, and we may worry that asking questions will only make us look like we don’t know what we’re doing. We form opinions without knowing all the facts, take things at face value or slip into snap judgements. All our lives we’ve been praised for knowing the answer – and yet, we’re rarely taught how to ask good questions. You don’t need all the answers. You need the right questions. In this thoughtful and accessible journey into the world of practical philosophy, Elke Wiss explains why we often find asking questions so challenging in the first place. By learning how to ask the questions that really matter, you can start unlocking more meaningful conversations, begin to bridge difficult divides, and build deeper connections with family, friends, or people we’re only just getting to know.
