ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Can philosophers and psychologists work together to guide us towards living wisely?
In pursuing the good life, can too much reflection be dangerous?
Might philosophers have downplayed the importance of getting lost in experience?
Professor of philosophy Valerie Tiberius joins Igor and Charles to discuss positive illusions, values integration, bearing our own reflective survey, and the perils of excessive introspection. Igor has questions about the rise of the empirically-informed movement in philosophy, Valerie suggests humility is critical to friendship, and Charles wants to know how hit-moral-philosophy-comedy ‘The Good Life’ ever got commissioned. Welcome to Episode 9.
