Mind reading might sound like the stuff of science fiction. But in philosophy and psychology, mind reading is something that human beings do whenever we try to guess what another person is thinking. Could it be that people are also natural born mind sharers, unconsciously shaping our behavior to be understood by others? How do we change or exaggerate our actions when others are present? And how can we use these insights to communicate better with our loved ones?
Join our live audience at the Stanford Humanities Center as Josh and Ray record a brand-new episode with their special guest, Yale psychologist Julian Jara-Ettinger.
In addition to thought-provoking conversation and audience questions, the show will feature multimedia reporting from Roving Philosophical Reporter Holly J. McDede and satirical commentary from Ian Shoales the Sixty-Second Philosopher.
