Three Excerpts from Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief

2018-06-14T09:09:23+00:00

I recently recorded an audio version of Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief (Routledge, 1999), now available at Audible. I believe that the audio version will make the book much more accessible, as I was able to highlight the meaning of the more complex sections with careful intonation. You

#52 – Munk Debate: Political Correctness

2018-06-04T16:43:43+00:00

The resolution? "What you call political correctness, I call progress…" On May 18th, the redoubtable Stephen Fry (self-admitted soft leftie) and I debated the duo of academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson (https://bit.ly/2IzKSZz) and blogger/author Michelle Goldberg (https://bit.ly/2wVOTBZ). A press release describing the

2018-06-08T06:13:38+00:00

On June 6, journalist Sean Illing (email posted on Vox: sean.illing@vox.com) interviewed Assistant Professor of Philosophy (Cornell Philosophy Department) Dr. Kate Manne (the “feminist philosopher”) (Dr Kate Manne's Website) about me and my work. I have decided, in general, not to respond to such pieces, unless (1) they are extremely

#51 – Russell Brand

2018-06-04T15:26:21+00:00

Russell Brand talked with me in London. This was our second conversation (the first was in LA a few months ago: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL61yQgdWeM). I thought we had a good discussion then, but I think this one was better. We met in London about two weeks ago (in

#50 – Dr. Richard Haier: The Neuroscience of Intelligence

2018-06-04T11:09:25+00:00

There is almost nothing more important to understand about people than intelligence. It can be measured more accurately than anything else in the social sciences. It differs tremendously and importantly between individuals. It is the single most important determinant of life success. It's very existence,

#49 – Steven Pinker: Enlightenment Now

2018-05-28T14:39:16+00:00

I spoke with Harvard's Dr. Steven Pinker about the immense improvements in human living conditions that are now happening with amazing speed almost everywhere in the world -- as detailed in his new book, Enlightenment Now (https://amzn.to/2jDwv7D) -- a careful, clear-headed and data-driven defense of

Postmodernism: definition and critique (with a few comments on its relationship with Marxism)

2018-05-28T08:23:01+00:00

This is from today's AMA on Reddit: http://j.mp/2s2TIEL DEFINITION AND CRITIQUE Postmodernism is essentially the claim that (1) since there are an innumerable number of ways in which the world can be interpreted and perceived (and those are tightly associated) then (2) no canonical manner of interpretation can be reliably derived.

On the New York Times and “Enforced Monogamy”

2018-06-07T22:28:45+00:00

My motivated critics couldn't contain their joyful glee this week at discovering my hypothetical support for a Handmaid's Tale-type patriarchal social structure as (let's say) hinted at in Nellie Bowles' New York Times article presenting her take on my ideas. It's been a truism among anthropologists and biologically-oriented psychologists for decades
