The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 27
There is a fair amount of criticism of my recent book Cynical Theories (written with Helen Pluckrose) out there now, mostly from philosophers who aren’t up to the task. It is both fair and correct to say that the book isn’t perfect. Given their inability to criticize the book adequately, however, I decided to take matters into my own hands and am discussing the issue at length in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast. Join me to hear what I think of these philosophers’ criticisms (not much!) and what a proper criticism of the work would look like (and why the book “falls short” in this way).
