10. Conclusion

  • Georg Weizsäcker (author)
Chapter 10 concludes the book, briefly summarizing the ideas explored within each chapter. Alongside these summaries, this chapter compares the ideas explored and addresses the concepts behind them. Here, the writer also elaborates on how these ideas can be applied, along with establishing that this book is not an exhaustive guide to every instance of discussion – as such, it cannot predict every outcome perfectly, but it is an example of some of the many forms conversations can take.
