Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed physician and activist Dr. Paul Hsieh about "Understanding the Three Languages of Politics" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. 

How many times have you been in political discussions with friends where you find you're talking past one another? You'll make points they consider irrelevant, whereas they'll focus on issues you consider nonessential. Such problems can be overcome, at least in part, using Arnold Kling's concept of the "Three Languages of Politics." 

Dr. Paul Hsieh is a physician in practice in South Denver. He is the co-founder of Freedom and Individual Rights in Medicine (FIRM)
