Disagreeing About Disagreement
About This Episode
Part II of our discussion on Rai and Fiske (sort of): We answer a listener's email and in the process
get into an episode long argument about moral intuitions, psychological facts, the implications of moral disagreement. Before that, we talk about the recent study about testicles and parenting. We don't play small ball on this one.
