Nonviolent Communication

by Marshall B. Rosenberg

Nonviolent Communication

Marshall B. Rosenberg

Overview

Free speech advocates commonly argue that speech is the opposite of violence - words can offend us, but they don't do actual harm. From this point of view, 'nonviolent communication' is practically an oxymoron.

Communications expert Marshall B. Rosenberg begs to differ: according to him, most people's default manner of speaking to others is highly violent. That is, if you consider 'violence' to include attempts at cutting others down to size and coercing them into doing what we want. Whether or not most ordinary speakers are constantly committing literal acts of 'violence' or not, most of us can see the potential benefit in learning to communicate more effectively. Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life provides one provocative lens (NVC) for seeing what's morally and pragmatically wrong with many of the things we tend to say in our everyday lives, and also helps us to figure out what we could say instead.
