Did Psychology Change Human Thinking? - Gregg Henriques
BEST MEDICINE PODCAST Episode 39 is here!
I’m going to try a new format for the email list starting this week.
With each episode I write up a new blog post. Usually I send the whole blog post and the show’s administrative info on one big eamil.
This week I will send administrative info in one email and chunks of the blog post in subsequent emails.
Let me know which format you enjoy more and I will go with the means that’s more convenient for readers.
ON THIS EPISODE OF THE BEST MEDICINE PODCAST
Our Guest: Dr Gregg Henriques
Today’s podcast is about the enlightenment gap and the ways the field of psychology has fundamentally altered human consciousness.
My friend Dr Gregg Henriques is returning to this show for the fourth time. He is an esteemed professor of psychology at James Madison University, an author, and a clinical psychologist. He’s also been doing a very large amount of podcasts lately, which are all very good. You should check them out after you finish this one :-)
This podcast’s goal was to identify exactly how the enlightenment gap is causing problems in society’s ethical decision-making process, and what might be done about that.
