The Mind Report RSSpodcastemail

Paul Bloom (Yale University, Just Babies) and David Pizarro (Cornell University)

On The Mind Report, Paul talks to David about his recent TED talk about the politics of disgust. Paul asks David for a theory of why we connect repugnance and wrongness, and they argue about whether we pass moral judgment on a baby with a dirty diaper. Both Paul and David agree that disgust is not a good guide to morality. They next consider the dismissal of reason as a trend in academic psychology. Paul and David close by explaining how the lessons of social psychology can help with everyday life.
