Manage episode 298257888 series 96958
I interview John V. Petrocelli, Professor of Psychology at Wake Forest University, about his new book The Life-Changing Science of Detecting Bullshit. What exactly is bullshit, and how does it differ from a lie? Why do people bullshit? And how can we become better at identifying and countering bullshit? These are all important questions given our current social and political environment.
Buy a copy of the book for yourself right here.
While you're at it, treat yourself to Harry Frankfurt's tiny classic On Bullshit.
