Are you a rational person?

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

13-06-2024 • 42 mins

REPEAT from 2023: You probably know people who you think are irrational (and you’re certainly NOT one of them!).

They have views you don’t agree with and make decisions that make no sense. And maybe you even feel irrational people are on the rise.  And that makes you nervous.

But just who is a rational person?  What constitutes rational thinking?  And can we use this form of thinking to make better decisions and live better lives?

Let’s turn to a philosopher for answers.  Duncan McIntosh is a Professor of Philosophy at Dalhousie University in Halifax and teaches a course on the Theory of Rational Decision.
