Today I'm speaking with Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen, a historian from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. It would be hard to find a scholar better equipped to enhance our historical perspective on how we decide what's true.
Jennifer and I challenge each other's thinking on several questions, including:
Were Enlightenment ideas about natural rights discovered or created?
Does the distinction between objective truth and pragmatic truth really matter?
How do we reconcile timeless values with scientific disruption?
