Tad Delay suggests three basic rules for talking about the philosophy that one spends hours studying to a lay person who doesn’t have that time to spare:
1. Being able to communicate philosophy clearly and without loaded jargon is the equivalent to being a good evangelist for the whole of philosophy. It shows others that not only is philosophy cool, but so is thinking abstractly, and critically.
2. To do this well, you should be a bit detached. Don’t get over zealous. Use your surroundings as props. Use your body. Pull examples out of the sky, not out of your ass.
3. Use examples over defining concepts without any context. There is nothing worse that throwing out 3 to 4 ideas without providing some context. Each time you throw out an idea, if the person really cares, they will want that idea defined, which may take 5 minutes unto itself. So its best to not even use the word that defines the idea until you have said it without any reference to it at all.
