Beliefs Gone Wild

JANUARY 31, 2009 | With Michael Philips

Our brains evolved on the African savannah, but are now expected to deal with complex statistical information and other intricate concepts every day. The result: beliefs gone wild. Ken and John reveal the traps that the mismatch between our brains and the world we live in pose for ordinary mortals with their guest, The Undercover Philosopher, Michael Philips. This program was recorded before a live audience at the Illahee Institute in Portland, Oregon.
