Sense and Civility

Monday, July 2, 2018

How can we have a dialogue about the issues of the day if we can't agree on the facts? How can we work to solve our most pressing issues if we don't treat each other with basic respect? Critical thinking and civility are necessary to be good citizens, but it's difficult to decide what those terms mean in 2018. We will sort it all out with Perry Bacon Jr., senior writer for FiveThirtyEight, and Dr. Michael Lynch, philosophy professor and author of The Internet of Us: Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data. Please call us during this show at 440-2665 or (800) 940-2240.

Today's Guests:

Perry Bacon, Jr. - Senior Writer for FiveThirtyEight
Dr. Michael Lynch - Professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut
