This is a broadcast-ready version of Thinking Clearly, a show about critical thinking and related topics, hosted by Julia Minton and Bob Froehlich. The program features guests involved in cutting edge research, writing and teaching relating to improving the quality of our information environment, belief formation and civil dialogue. This show is produced in KMUD's studios in Redway, California. If your station decides to carry the show, please drop us a line at tc@kmud.org.
As discussed in his recent book: "The Know-It-All Society", Michael P. Lynch, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut, helps us take another look at the current state of dialogue in contemporary American culture as we discuss how polarization, conviction and intellectual arrogance has led us to believe that we have nothing to learn from those whose convictions are different from ours and rewards us for displaying emotional outrage, rather than more deliberative, rational thinking.
