Lessons from Philosophy
As a Philosopher by trade, Justin McBrayer is not afraid to ask the big questions. I bring Justin on the show to learn more about his research and his latest book ‘Beyond Fake News: Finding the TRUTH in a world of misinformation’. Justin is also a teacher, speaker and writer. Much of his work focuses on helping ordinary individuals and political bodies to think consistently and carefully about the problems they encounter, the values they embrace, and the evidence they’ve gathered.
In this episode we discuss fake stories we’ve been duped by, the role of fact-checking, mental shortcuts and blind spots, and epistemic injustice. There is a lot to unpack in this conversation so enjoy!
