On this episode of the Popperian Podcast (isn’t that a nice alliteration?), Jed Lea-Henry and I talk about how to distinguish between science and pseudoscience (aka the demarcation problem), Karl Popper’s famous solution, my own ‘naturalization’ of pseudoscience, the question of scientism and limits of science, the epistmology of conspiracy theories, and when it is rational to believe falsehoods. Wow, we talked for almost two hours!
Thanks a lot to Jed for inviting me, and for being so extremely well-prepared (he basically read almost all of my papers, even my unpublished manuscript about pseudoscience that is coming out soon). I had loads of fun!
