When we’re compelled to explain how something works, including political issues and policies, we are forced to confront our lack of knowledge. That idea, its implications, and related studies from cognitive science frames this discussion with guest, Professor Steven Sloman, one of the authors of the recent book, “The Knowledge Illusion – why we never think alone.” This show aired live on Aug. 3, 2017.
