Gad Saad, Ph.D., is one of the best-known intellectuals fighting what he calls the tyranny of political correctness, often writing and speaking about idea pathogens that are destroying logic, science, reason, and common sense. A pioneer in the application of evolutionary psychology to consumer behavior, he joins the show today to share his knowledge on the topic, diving deep into why this is so important in today’s world.

Listen in as Gad shares insights from his book, The Parasitic Mind: How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense, and explains the concept of comparative psychology. You will learn the main issues with social sciences, how to apply an evolutionary lens to understand our cognitive vices, and the importance of studying marketing—even if you are knowledgeable about the subject at hand.
