BONUS | The Knowledge Illusion

July 31, 2018

In this second BONUS to our Immersive episode, “Risk,” we hear a story from a cognitive scientist, Philip Fernbach, who did not make a good decision in Malawi. We learn why he and you are vulnerable to an illusion of knowledge. And whether it’s ok to live in this illusion. Clearly there are times when we should have knowledge of things, right?
