Professor A.C. Grayling: ‘What We Know About Science, History & The Human Mind’ (E1044)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Professor A.C. Grayling, author of ‘The Frontiers of Knowledge: What We Know About Science, History & The Human Mind’. He discusses the historical tension between science and religion, the giant strides in scientific and historical knowledge made between generations, how we are still finding out the greatness of past civilisations such as in modern-day Iraq and Syria, how superstition and religion manage to hold up in a modern world with vast scientific knowledge, the propensity for humans to grasp for simple answers to complex questions, bitter partisanship between in the US among the population and elected Republicans and Democrats, why he believes Brexit was a disaster, and much more!
