Press Release (ePRNews.com) - COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sep 03, 2017 - Can science really help people understand the purpose of life and teach them how to live a meaningful one? Dr. Gleb Tsipursky recently published a guest article on The Medium Post (https://medium.com/@Dr_Gleb_Tsipursky/guide-for-talking-to-irrational-people-whispering-to-the-elephant-f91186cb62b6) discusses the issues of people who struggle in dealing with others who have become attached to political viewpoints that are irrational — based on poor logic or on “alternative facts.” This how-to guide helps you talk to such folks, whether they are sincerely mistaken or just deliberately aggravating — behavior known as trolling. The information on this article offers strategies informed by psychology and neuroscience research, while laying out these strategies in a visually engaging form.
Dr. Tsipursky is a tenure-track professor at Ohio State University. As a historian of science, he researches the intersection of history, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience, focusing on meaning and purpose, decision-making, emotions, and agency. He is also a science popularizer, a best-selling author, and president of the nonprofit organization Intentional Insights (www.intentionalinsights.org). His workbook combines an engaging narrative, stories from people’s lives, and research-informed exercises designed to help people cultivate a rich sense of meaning and purpose.
His focus is on whether science can answer life’s big questions, such as “why am I here” and “what is the purpose of life for me?” These questions, as Dr. Tsipursky describes in his work, have become answerable due to a recent wave of research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and medicine.
The workbook describes these strategies in much greater depth, with a free book version available at http://intentionalinsights.org/book-find-your-purpose-usi…. It was published by Intentional Insights, a nonprofit devoted to inspiring people to refine and reach their goals. This nonprofit provides research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns. Intentional Insights also offers free online classes, videotaped workshops, blogs, and other content on meaning and purpose, as well as in a variety of other topics.
