Drawing on Shahvisi’s work as a philosopher, and using live controversies, well-known case studies, and personal anecdotes, this audiobook reveals and analyses the power relations that shape our social world, and offers powerful ways to challenge them. Arguing for a Better World belongs on nightstands and in book clubs everywhere -- Carol Hay, author of Think Like a Feminist: The Philosophy Behind the RevolutionAllows us to not only interrogate our own views, but to persuade others using reason and optimism.

Oppression, she helps us understand, is a “collective harm” that causes “long-term, widespread, predictable suffering, which, crucially, is preventable. A better view is that we should as much as possible see our common humanity - in all humans; attempt to treat all people fairly and with respect; know that while it is difficult to understand each other, it is never impossible, no matter what our race, colour or creed. Arianne Shahvisi's book cuts through the noise with an eminently sensible discussion of key contemporary 'culture war' issues . If we truly hope to participate in the political and moral quandaries of our time, Shahvisi argues, we need to be able to articulate our beliefs and values, and also why we believe them.This creates cultural and political tribes, makes people nervous about engaging at all, or leads to the issues to be trivialised or attributed to the excessive sensitivity of ‘snowflakes’ to ‘identity politics’.

And, I would say that the differences between the Global North and South was a lens that I don't often use and will now keep in mind especially as it relates to labor and capitalism. Arianne will be joined in conversation by Professor Bobbie Farsides, Professor of Clinical and Biomedical Ethics at BSMS, for readings from the book and a discussion on some of the topics.

Take a middle of the road approach (argues some combination is necessary yet doesn’t explicitly state any as what is actually being discussed which makes it inaccessible to individuals newer to the subject).The author shamelessly presents ideas of other thinkers and philosophers as her own all the way through the book. Often entertaining and funny; always concise, exacting, logical, readable, authoritative and un-put-downable.
