RS#40: Q&A with Massimo and Julia
August 1, 2011 Leave a comment
The latest episode of the Rationally Speaking podcast is a special one-hour Q&A, in which Massimo and I answer selected questions from our listeners. In this installment the topics include: What would we teach in a class on critical thinking? What are our views on on analytic vs. continental philosophy? Is it ethical to take advantage of a drought to sell water at marked-up prices? How do we compartmentalize our rationality? How does modern technology affect the way we think about things? What is, or should be, the primary purpose of our species? And is there really a rational argument to prove the divine origin of the Bible?
