What do people think of my extensive discussion of Dale Carnegie in chapters 4 and 6? To my surprise, no one has asked me about it yet. It makes perfect sense to me, but it's unusual, so I expected some push-back. Thoughts?
I'll just add one note - a change I'm contemplating. In chapters 4 and 6 I make the argument that Carnegie is more Socratic than you might think. But there's one point where I was thinking about making the opposite point, on pp. 291-2, then I ended up leaving it implicit. (We'll just test out the handy-dandy embed software here.)
Basically, Socrates says that justice amounts to winning friends (with yourself!) and influencing people-parts.
I think it's maybe worth playing up - just a little - how superficially Carnegiesque this famous passage is. What thinks you?
