#198 — April 16, 2020

In this episode of the podcast, Sam Harris and Paul Bloom discuss the false tradeoff between the economy and public health, putting a price on human life, framing effects for moral questions, how Covid-19 may change human behavior, “turn-key totalitarianism,” the future of education, the long term psychological effects of the pandemic, the 2020 election, the prospect that Sanders supporters won’t vote for Biden, and what Sam means when he says “the self is an illusion,” and other topics. 

Paul Bloom is the Brooks and Suzanne Ragen Professor of Psychology at Yale University. His research explores how children and adults understand the physical and social world, with special focus on morality, religion, fiction, and art.
