The Death of Expertise – 016

Tom Nichols book The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why it Matters might seem like a preachy/complainy rant by a professor who wishes his students took him more seriously on the surface. But if you give it a chance, it very clearly explains many of the biggest issues at the heart of events in the US in recent years. It’s a shockingly important book that I would recommend to anyone interested in current events and in understanding why people behave the ways they do. This episode talks about my favorite insights from the book.
