Episode 22 of my podcast series, Salon of the Refused, is now available.
I talk with Helen Pluckrose, editor of Areo magazine and co-author of Cynical Theories, about the roots of today’s “woke” culture war in the philosophical school of Postmodernism. The conversation includes: how a philosophy of radical skepticism became dogmatic and authoritarian, how we lost both individualism and universalism, how coronavirus made our ideological bubbles more impenetrable, was Immanuel Kant the first Postmodernist, have we reached peak wokeness, and liberalism as an intellectual system.
