Seize The Moment Podcast


Apr 3, 2022

On episode 126, we welcome Professor Christian Madbjerg to discuss the elements of ‘sense-making’, the benefits and limits of data collection, Moneyball and why some of the sports teams implementing purely statistical approaches aren’t as successful as one may think they are, analytic empathy and using data to form deeper understandings of inter-subjective experiences, how to integrate various perspectives to gain a better understanding of the world, the interpersonal elements of psychotherapy and why therapy apps aren’t as effective as hoped for, the importance of setting aside judgments to grasp individual decisions and the resistance JFK experienced during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and how the humanities (including philosophy) complement data and the sciences.

Christian Madsbjerg is professor of Applied Humanities at The New School and Co-Founder of the pioneering consultancy Red Associates, a strategy consulting company based in the human sciences and employing anthropologists, sociologists, art historians, and philosophers. Madsbjerg studied philosophy and political science in Copenhagen and London. His latest book is called Sensemaking: The Power of the Humanities in the Age of the Algorithm.
