On episode 95, Leon chats with philosopher Andy Norman about mental immunity and how to reason well, what ideologies are and what makes them toxic, the responsibility each of us have to become rational thinkers and why, ethically, we can't just believe what we want to, how repetition fuels delusional beliefs, how we can remain hopeful and optimistic without fooling ourselves, human nature and why it's less awful than we believe, effective teaching methods and how Leon's friendship with Dr. Tim Stroup helped him become more open minded, the ways in which we resist facing reality, why a belief's practical outcomes contribute to its validity as much as its truthfulness, and why reasoning together, as opposed to against one another, can help us create a better world.
