Playing for Team Human today, authors of Cynical Theories, Helen Pluckrose and James Lindsay.
Pluckrose, Lindsay, and Rushkoff discuss the origins of French postmodernism and how it trickled into academic research and scholarship. Together, they explore our contemporary war of competing narratives and how a fascistic political environment influences not just the politics of a particular moment, but people’s attitudes toward one another.
In his opening monologue, Rushkoff discusses Netflix’s new documentary, The Social Dilemma, and how the very people who programmed our most anti-human technologies are now playing for Team Human.
