In this 128th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.
This week, we discuss Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning: What is it to be human, how much responsibility to we have for finding our own way, and how can we find hope, and meaning, even at the worst of times? Then: people have a moral obligation to grapple with the downstream effects of their own arguments, from medical claims to cries to defund and vilify the police. In the wake of yet another mass shooting at a school, what is the state of the 2nd Amendment? What is the interface of modern politics with homelessness, addiction, mental illness, and crime? And what is happening in the governor’s race in California?
