This quick TED talk entry is courtesy of TED.com. Why do we argue? To out-reason our opponents, prove them wrong, and, most of all, to win! … Right? Philosopher Daniel H. Cohen shows how our most common form of argument — a war in which one person must win and the other must lose — misses out on the real benefits of engaging in active disagreement.
