ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Does that which doesn’t kill you make you weaker?
Should we always follow our emotions?
Is life a battle between good people and bad people?
And critically, what might the adoption of these three popular, but unwise, ideas be doing to a rising generation of young adults?
NYU Professor Jonathan Haidt joins Igor and Charles to discuss the three great untruths of modern life, the nature of antifragility, the ‘great awokening,’ rising violence on US university campuses, and the origin story of the Heterodox Academy. Igor suggests that diversity can help some projects while hindering others, Jon shares his ultimate conflict-resolving ninja skill, and Charles learns that conservative voters come in radically different shapes and sizes.
